I’m so happy working with the people that I’m working with. They’re all so enthusiastic, want to improve and they’re really, really making a huge effort to communicate with me and get up to speed.

“They’ve obviously made some good steps forward compared to last year and I think they’re on the right track to improve in the right direction. So I couldn’t really be happier with them.”
