“I hope we can finish the work in that moment and we can play in our new home. If not, we are going to give our best to win games and give good performances.

“This is another disappointment but we need to be all together and that this is a massive project that will be there forever.

“I understand the problems about tickets and the money, I feel sorry for the fans.
