After a long road of trial and error I finally managed to play the last games of the season.
Looking back on the past season, I have come to the honest conslusion that the number of match minutes was disappointing. I knew in advance that this could happen, bhut I took up the challenge and gave everything to make it work. And not only me, everyone within the club and in my immediate environment has helped and supported me at all times.
I am also not unaffected by the warm reactions and support from all football fans.”
