Anonymous peer review: “At first sight, ’The Robber’ looks like a nasty fellow to play against, but one should not let oneself be fooled by the appearance – he really is a nasty opponent! As the rumor goes, however, Mr. Takala acts like a true gentleman as soon as he gets off the court.”

Strengths as a futsal player? "Eliminating opponents' plans at both mental and physical levels. Defending in general and duels at both ends."
Interests outside futsal court? "Gym, gambling, straight-forward argumentation, console games, soccer – playing and following.”
Mikko Kytölä asked you the following: "Were you to fall in love with a Croatian girl, do you think the relationship could work in the long run considering the distance? After all, it’s 2300 kilometres from Jyväskylä to Zagreb.” "Without a doubt, I could date a Croatian girl. Hopefully our tactical wizard a.k.a coach Tero Kelhälä doesn´t arrange any extra training sessions for our rest day. Let´s see what happens, I´ll keep my heart and mind wide open. Greetings to all Croatian girls!”
What have you always wanted to know about a KaDy player but have been too afraid to ask him? “This one goes to coach Tero Kelhälä. During the two years you’ve worked as KaDy’s coach, we’ve witnessed an enormous progress tactically, and, as a result, the team has attained great success. All this hasn’t been left unnoticed by the futsal-following public. How do you feel about the possibility of coaching the Finnish national team some day? Is it your goal or dream as a futsal-coach?”
