Andrey Kazu is from Jakarta, Indonesia and supports Fiorentina in Italy.
He’s been following the club since 96. He spoke to me about his journey as a Fiorentina fan.
We discussed the influence and loyalty of Gabriel Batistuta. The rivalry with Juventus and how he picked a name for his son.
In 2016, Andrey visited Florence. The stadium was closed but the kindness of the staff gave him an experience of a lifetime.
He’s a member of Viola Club Indonesia. We discussed the fantastic job they have done as well as the passion for football in Indonesia.
I asked him what this journey has taught him. He told me it was patience.
Something I realized he has a lot of, when he told me the story of how he waited for 5 hours outside the training ground just to be able to see the players.
He also gave me some advice on why I shouldn't get a tattoo :)
Thank you to Viola Club Indonesia for their help and support.
