INTERVIEW – “Take a look around. As you can see, this is a pretty old room, with nothing fancy about it. This is our board room where our VIP guests meet before, during and after games. There are quite a few old pictures telling the history about this club. But you probably also noticed a few new pictures of our new stadium.
