During the signing ceremony, Djurgarden ‘s Sporting director Bosse Andersson told the club's official website:

“He is very ambitious and purposeful, train hard and always want to learn and take the next step. Then I think he made a fantastic impression as a person both on and off the pitch. The development potential is huge so the peace and quiet of our Djurgården environment he can develop into a striker for the biggest leagues in Europe. It is the goal of Michael himself and he has the characteristics required for it”
