I play football because it is my passion.

I play at Hovestadt because it is a friendly and good club.

My favorite club is Paris Saint-Germain.

My role models in football are… Ronaldinho, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The beginning of the season did not go well. Her coach, Martin Brokember, said during the week that “some things cannot be explained in football.” Do you have an explanation for this?

I’m sure we all imagined it differently. He (Martin Brokember, editor’s note) is trying to do our best. In the end, it depends on the discipline of each individual player. But I have a feeling that we are slowly getting to where we want to be.

Do you still want to go with your team? Your coach says you are now heading downhill…

Winning in Operense was definitely good for us. I am convinced that we want and will continue to collect points in the first half of the season. I don’t see us being there in the second half of the season. The road to sixth place is not far.

They brought it up. The previous season ended in sixth place, and expectations at the club were correspondingly high. very high?

I can’t say that exactly. However, the league is much more balanced than last season, which of course makes it more difficult to achieve goals.

This is what coach Martin Brokemper says about Mirsad Masuku

“Mirsad is an intelligent footballer, he is strong at running and dribbling and has the right instincts in front of goal. He is also great as a person and any coach would be happy to have a player like him in their ranks. He is completely honest, but in my opinion, he put too much pressure on himself recently when he did not “Things were going well.”

I have often scored three or more goals in one match. What makes these three goals so valuable?

The most important thing is to win in the situation we are in. The three goals were of course also important.

They have been at the top of the top scorer lists in the Zone A League for years, currently with eight goals. There were certainly enough offers. Why do you still play in Hovastadt?

Of course there were offers. But I’m so limited professionally and privately, I wouldn’t be able to take on that effort. Hovistadt has become close to my heart and I feel really comfortable here.
