If we succeed to reach to the final again, we will try to win it infront of our home crowd.”

We have some things we need to discuss, however, it’s all extremely positive. From what we’ve seen today, and what’s been demonstrated, and the documentation and the level of commitment by all concerned parties has left me very, very satisfied.”
