“We can end the season in the perfect way with a win on Sunday, and we’re all determined not to lose this last home game in front of all our fans.
“We need to be prepared for a difficult match against a team fighting relegation, to ensure we qualify for Europe.”

“When I arrived, the team was in the middle of a fantastic season. Every player wants the chance to play as much as possible, but that’s the name of the game, and I’ve always tried to be prepared to help the team as much as possible.
“I can’t complain whatsoever, I’ve played 11 matches this season and have been in high-intensity training nearly every day.
“I had some physical problems over a few months, but I recovered and got back to work as soon as I could.
