I personally think we are on the verge of winning ways but the results have not gone our way. I’d like to wish everyone‚ especially the fantastic supporters‚ all the success that this club deserves.”

Moreover, Roger successfully took us to two cup finals with the highlight being the MTN8 triumph last season, winning it with a record 10 academy players in the starting line-up.”
