As his contract with Malmo expires at the end of the year, Swedish midfielder Erdal Rakip is already thinking of leaving the club and looking for a ‘new adventure’.

This is something explained by him in an interview with Fotbollskanalen. The 25-year-old spoke of the season he’s been having at his club and his aspirations for his career.

Rakip had previously played for two clubs abroad: Benfica and Crystal Palace. That was a one-year experience he had outside of Sweden, and he claims it was not enough to prove himself.

“It’s clear that I want to try new adventures. The last time I was abroad, I did not really get a real chance, you could say,” Rakip told Fotbollskanalen.

“I’d have liked to try it but I have one year left on my contract and anything can happen in one year. I take it day by day.”

Rakip first joined Benfica in a move from Malmo in January 2018. He was immediately loaned to Crystal Palace in a strange move, and things didn’t go very well for him there.

The midfielder couldn’t make a single appearance for the Selhurst Park side, and that turned out to be a bizarre experience he had in the Premier League.

Things got worse with him returning to Benfica and not playing for the Eagles either. That’s why in February 2019 he agreed his return to Malmo, where he could get back on the pitch, and had enough success to dream of a move abroad again.
