I think the main reason is that they wanted to move away from him, and it’s a difficult decision to make when you have the right talent in your squad.
But it’s also a decision that has a lot of positives.
When you have a squad like that, you’re always looking to the future.
They’ve got a great young squad, with a lot to prove.
You can see they’ve got good players, good talent to go and build with.
It’s been a tough time, but at the same time I think they’ve done a fantastic job.
I’ve seen them play with such quality in the past, it’s unbelievable.
You see the players’ intensity, the way they go about it, the professionalism.
I’m very proud to be part of that squad.
I can’t thank the manager enough for the support.
We’ve had a really good year so far.
But there’s always going to be that period of uncertainty, there’s never going to go away, it just gets to be an added pressure, to make the right decision.
