Together, a galaxy

By Alexander Mahmoud – When Henok Goitom left La Liga after eight years for Swedish football club AIK, he looked forward of combining the job as top ranked player in Sweden with his coach position in the tiki-taka-playing division four team Kista Galaxy FC. A team that has risen three divisions in the same amount of years. Today, Kista Galaxy trains at Kvarnbacka football in Husby and helps kids getting through school – in Husby, Stockholm, only 3 out of 10 make it through school – and brings a strong solidarity and venue to the community. Like in the spring 2013, what came to be called the ’Husby riots’, Henok knew how and did reach kids who had trouble in controlling their frustration against the police. This story is an ongoing project.
