the Title as alenefar is probably not just what that particular many connect with a life as a professional footballer.
But nevertheless, it is the reality for the 27-year-old FC Copenhagen player Nicolai Boilesen.
In 2016, he became the father to his daughter Nala, but after a break with the mother share now forældreskabet.
"When mom and dad are not together, so it requires a lot of planning and good communication in order to get it to work. And it works, but it is not always a dance on roses," says Nicolai Boilesen, as the B. T. meets him on FCK's training facility.
He slog away at the moment in the gym to get ready for the forårsæsonen after the severe korsbåndsskade, he was on a training camp in the summer.
But it is not only when he meets into the 10's eren, who the FCK-players call træningsanlægget in Frederiksberg, it is currently a challenge for him.
"If one were to paint a perfect picture for your child, would you paint it with mother and father together, but the reality is just another, and we must get the best out of," says venstrebacken and adds:
"I'd be lying if I said it was easy. Of course, it is hard, but it is also very rewarding, for I have got a even closer ties to Nala."
2. July was Nicolai Boilesen lying in the grass during a practice match in Austria. Korsbåndet was smoked.
"I've never had a knee injury, but the pain I got in the moment, and it crack, I could hear, did, that I well knew, it was completely mad," he explains.
It confirmed a scan also day then.
He could look forward to a rehabilitation in eight-nine months, and here halfway in the process it is still mentally hard for him. But he is going to have to park the frustration and impatience on the træningsanlægget:
"It is some long days out here once in a while, but I just have to put it from me, when I come home, because I want to have quality time with my daughter."
the Injury came at a time where FC Copenhagen had to defend a Danish championship and try to qualify for the Champions League group stage, and it was a hard blow for the former Ajax captain, who, however, finds solace in his daughter's company:
"It is easier for me to deal with my injury, when I have so much time with her. When I get home, I forget everything else, because I only focus on her."
the Calendar is currently not filled with battles and travel on the weekends, and although Nicolai Boilesen, of course, would have been the damage, in addition, he sees an advantage in it:
"Just to be able to keep Sundays free along. It is something I'm not thinking so much about when I'm not injured. I think a lot of that when I'm alone with her in everyday life, so should I really just be there for her."
All the while the talk goes, it is clear that it is a subject that touches something deep in him.
"It is always difficult for me, when I don't have her. I would always like to be together with her, and I miss her when she is with her mother," he says and elaborates:
"Just hand her in the day care centre and training leads to a need."
In december last year, extended the Nicolai Boilesen his contract down FC Copenhagen, so it runs to the summer of 2023.
in addition to the joy of the daily walk in the club and the city played the daughter, who got a difficult start in life, also a big role in the decision to extend.
"I thought my daughter was too small for it, that I could bring myself to travel away from her. I am not afraid to say," he says.
however, It is important for him to stress that a new udlandseventyr is not completely excluded.
"After I have chosen to have a child, so that must be good enough much before I choose to say: 'It is here, I do'," explains Nicolai Boilesen and adds:
"I come not to switch to a place where you need three different flights to come forward. It's not going to happen."
even Though the rest of the lucrative salaries lure many of the football players, so it's not something that means something for Nicolai Boilesen.
"of Course I can make more money and all that, but it's damn not worth it for me in the end," he says.
