The goals came in and that helped us manage the game. The boss tells us to enjoy our football, not to relax, or to think too much about the 28. He says we have to compete in the remaining games, like we did in the first half, by scoring goals “.
“I feel good. I would like to thank the coaching staff and my teammates who have supported me so much every time I have played and also when I have not played. It is an honor to belong to this team and to be there to lend a hand when needed. It’s very special because after so much hard work this season, feeling the warmth of the fans is a big plus that motivates you to keep going.”
