SOC: What brings you your greatest joy?

Amini: "My little princess. She gave me the greatest joy when she came out I was full of happiness. She’s my greatest joy."

SOC: What’s your most treasured possession?

Amini: "It’s Vienna. I carry her and look after her like she’s an angel because that’s what she is to me."

SOC: If you could go back to relive one football moment what would it be and why?

Amini: "It would be when I was 15 in the Manchester Cup final and I stepped up for a penalty and missed. So I’d like to take that back."

SOC: What moment would you like to remove from your memory forever?

Amini: "The game last season with AGF. We were in a European play-off spot and we were on the brink of getting that spot and the last 30 seconds of the game we got scored against and that was it."

SOC: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Amini: "I’d say my height. If I was a little bit taller it would be good. It might help winning a few more headers that’s for sure."
