Apparently they made the right decision, seeing how much he's developed already

Now, I'm not 100% sure about this, but it's what I've heard from different sources, and it seems pretty plausible. Our local newspaper is publishing a big video interview with Vrána tomorrow though, where he'll probably talk about how he ended up in Linköping, so I'll see what he says.
