I think I will be able to help the players around get organised and hopefully we can have a very successful season.

From the early stages I’ve seen that off the field the people behind the scenes are very dedicated and motivated to get their club back to where it belongs. They have a lot of passion and belief and I hope I can do my bit as well.”
