“I was able to talk with the coach as well, with people working at the club. They gave me a lot of confidence, they showed me that they really wanted me. When we met, everything went very well.
“I spoke with people from the club, with the coach, which gave me a lot of confidence. I wanted to go to a club that really wanted me, which showed great interest. With all that, it was easy to say yes.”
