“It’s true that the club could’ve been sold mid-season. We were going through serious financial problems, even if we weren’t the only ones in such a difficult moment.

“I saw that as a club we can still improve. The coach has done something extraordinary over two years, now it’s up to us to improve the internal mechanism and aspire to something more.

“We mustn’t hide, it is a delicate moment, but we want this so we can take a bigger step forward. What we need is an over-reaching strategy that guarantees sustainability in the long-term.”
