“Everyone within the club knows that Donny cannot have another season like last year. In preparation, clarity would be provided about his role. The fans had already embraced him before, but the most important thing is that the trainer has now provided clarity in the English press. We are happy with that. And I assume that Donny will play a lot in one of the positions in midfield in the coming period.”
