He continued: “Of course, we made mistakes. If you dismiss your coach [Bosz] before Christmas, then of course you have not been right.”
“We are relieved to be in the Champions League after a difficult and complicated season for a variety of reasons,” he added. “This season was not a glorious one, but we now have plans for security with which to build our future and to implement our ideas. The idea being that now we have to have a new start.”
