13-year-old’s accident brings back bad memories:

13-year-old’s accident brings back bad memories:

– Now we’re talking, Robin Gabrielsen says and lights up.

Towards the end of a longer interview in Marbella, a TV2 returner asked Lillestrøm a question about what it meant to finish ahead of Vålerenga in the table.

– Garbage, they call it, Gabrielsen immediately replies.

He leaves nothing between them when describing the relationship with Lillestrom’s arch-rival.

– For me, there is durian. We are against Vålerenga. And then we’re up against the rest of the table. I almost get a little angry when we talk about it. People say they hate this and that. But I hate Vålerenga. I’m done with this. “When we play against them it’s real,” says Ruben Gabrielsen.

He notes that it is “football hate”, not to be confused with “real” hate.

– I think it should be. Not a bad thing to say – she hates football. It’s about football. You don’t need to explain it anymore. It’s not like if I see a fan of VIF I point the finger at him. I hope you have a nice day and a nice week. But for 90 minutes, Gabrielsen says, I wished them nothing and nothing.

I felt like a scapegoat

The fact that Gabrielsen – who played for Lillestrøm from 2008 to 2014 – has a stronger ‘hatred’ of Vålerenga than some of the others is in many ways his Åråsen debut in 2009.

– I was a scapegoat in my first start with Lillestrøm. He says he never left.

Gabrielsen was 17 years old and became the youngest ever LSK player to start against Vålerenga. But the match was a disappointment. It ended in a 1-2 loss.

After 80 minutes, he was beaten by Mostafa Abdullah, who settled the match 2-0.

I was thrown to the wolves, and I wasn’t ready for that. Then I kind of lost them. It was so huge. Since then, Robin Gabrielsen says, it has only grown.

This winter, he said, he caught his attention cheering when the speaker announced that Vålerenga had lost training matches.

– It’s a passion. I don’t have a problem with people. My uncle is a Vålerenga fan. This is football hatred, explains Ruben Gabrielsen.
