Speaking to the club’s website, he said: “I feel good and [I am] delighted to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone.
“It takes a bit of time, I think, to renew itself, but now it’s all done so we just have to focus on what’s next.
“I think you can see that over the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.
“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We also have new recruits. We just have to keep working hard, having a good vision, being positive and starting from scratch. »
