Posted Sunday, March 20, 2022 by

TOTTENHAM have already been part of one fly-on-the-wall documentary - now loan star Dejan Kulusevski is starring in another with girlfriend and fellow footballer Eldina Ahmic.

Playmakers, now in its fifth series, is a show put together by Sweden’s TV4 network that follows five Swedish athletes and their partners, also including Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

The first episode, which went out online on Thursday, featured a short film of Ahmic introducing herself and Kulusevksi and of them walking their dog while they were still living in Turin.

Kulusevski, on loan at Spurs from Juventus, said: “It’s just something very small. It’s not even on television, it’s on an app on the internet.

“The show is actually more about her and what she is doing, and how it is to live in cities like Turin and London. It’s not about my football.

“I’m just there, acting a little bit funny maybe, sometimes.

“She was nervous, absolutely. Me less, because I know for some years that everything I do comes out in a way or another.

“You have to be very careful with what you show to people because people cannot wait to bring you down.

“But I think that I am maturing a lot and the more the time goes, the more comfortable I feel in who I am.

“So here I am, I don’t care what will happen and what I say … I just love being myself and keep doing me.”

Kulusevski is such a smash hit at Tottenham, he already has his own song.

Tottenham fans have come up with a chant to the tune of Gimme, Gimme’ Gimme by another great Swedish export, Abba.

Kulusevski said: “I love it, of course. All my friends send it to me all the time and think it’s really funny.

“I actually like the song and like that the fans are enjoying me playing.

“I’m very happy that things are going good. I’m getting a lot of playing time.

“It depends on a lot of things, especially the coach’s trust in me and the staff who are helping me a lot and letting me make mistakes and be me and play without pressure.

“Then also the team-mates are fantastic, they help me a lot outside the pitch and inside the pitch. I’m really enjoying playing with them.

“When you are good in your mind, you usually play good football. Right now I’m in a happy place.

“I’m very proud to be in this club.”

But at 21, surely Kulusevski isn’t really an Abba fan?

With a smile, he added: “They’re quite good. I can’t say anything bad about them!”
