My goal was to play in Europe and feel like a player. Every time I step onto the field, I feel the same… It's incredible! And I say, ‘I'm glad I came here!' I've earned enough.”

Dzeko, who said he now needs more rest than before, stated, “I don't need to prove myself to others. If I see that I can't do something, I say what needs to be said. The biggest difference I feel is the recovery process between matches. I used to play a match every three or four days before, now I need more time. Sometimes resting is good for me. We are human, we are emotional. Sometimes emotions cannot be controlled. Foolish things have happened, but throughout my career, I tried to control myself. Football is played with the head, not the feet. You make all decisions with your head.”

“I'm not thinking about coaching”

Dzeko, who has not yet made a clear decision about his career, said, “I still enjoy the game, and I'm not thinking about what I will do in the next step. I feel good. Of course, I am aware that the end is near. I still don't know what I will do after my career. Become a coach? No, no. Not because I'm not interested, but I don't think in that direction. As a player, you are constantly traveling, but as a coach, it's even worse. You are never at home.”
