“This is an important acknowledgement, this makes you more responsible for yourself and for your teammates. My goal is to be of real help to the boys like “Tibe” was in recent years. It won’t be easy but this motivates me even more. Besides, I really want to bounce back. We did fight last season, it’s not been negative nor positive, but in the end we went down. Still, we have to forget about this , now our target is different, we’ll play to win this season not to stay up”.
