There are days when you can succeed, others when you cannot. There are days when it’s your turn, and days when it’s not your turn. We don’t always win. And this year, another team will win. From 1971 to 2021 we didn’t win a championship for 50 years, was that 50 years of failure? No. It was stages and we ended up being ready to win one. And I hope we win another one. »
