Contract renewal “I am very very happy, delighted. When I arrived I wanted to be successful and win titles. It’s another dream come true and I hope there are more titles and trophies.

I extended my contract because I feel very happy, every year I am more confident and I think we can keep winning titles. All titles are important and we want to win every competition we play in. I want to keep working hard and playing well”.
