“There were too many players at that time. There have been mistakes but we have taken chances with players, trying to find the right ones.
“When you don’t have a lot of money and you can’t get the ones you know are real quality, you have to take chances. In the end it has been unbalanced and that’s a challenge. It is a problem that has to be resolved.” (Herald)
