both brothers, they grew up in the quarry of Basel, club from which Granit, He hits the jump to Borussia Monchengladbach German. The two brothers also, shared equipment at the lower levels of Switzerland, where they scaled to U21. However when making the jump to the absolute, their paths separated.
