"We are going into the deepest possible details in our corrections, we are talking to the players, they are eager, motivated to improve themselves, individual improvement is improving partnership, partnership improvement is improving (the) department.

"Departments (are) improving the team and this is how we move. Every single individual is very important to us and we have seen, so many aspects of improvement.
