Who is your idol?
Jos: Noah Kofi is my idol. He is a very good player and a real example in the street football scene. He is still very young and has a lot of style. Nasser and Jackson also has a crazy style. I also like what he has achieved: from Panna cage to his own ball line.
Teun: My idols are Nasser and Jackson, Soufiane Bencock and Anas Boukami. Nasser el jackson is my idol because he has been through a lot in the street football scene. He also wants to mean something to other people. Soufiane Bencock is my idol because he has a very nice style that no one else has, I think that’s really cool. Anas boukami is my idol because I think he is a sneaky little guy. He just does what he wants, and has a fun and beautiful style to watch.
How do you make time for street football if you just have to go to school?
Jos: Simple. Just don’t come to school haha! No, first learn from school and then immediately play street football until dinner. Usually I also play football after dinner.
Teun: Of course I would prefer to play football all day, but school is also important because of course I don’t know yet whether I will be a street footballer. I hope so hahaha! I try to pay close attention in the lessons and the homework that I can do at school, I also immediately do at school. Then I only have to learn at home and I can just play football the rest of the time!
Do you ever skip school?
Jos: Generally not. Recently coincidentally 2 lessons for a photoshoot, but I had that approved by the school. I also skipped school for the World Cup in Copenhagen. I didn’t get home until 5 in the morning, so I was way too tired to go to school.
Teun: Yes, when I had a photoshoot I skipped 1 lesson, but that doesn’t happen very often. But hopefully there are still a lot of things to come so that I can skip school and play football hahaha.
