Speaking recently to FiB, the Sumas boss – who has released a list of 19 retained players – said it was key to improve the mentality amongst a squad that he suspected was still suffering following relegation from the Hellenic Premier Division. He said: “To be honest I think there was a little bit of a hang over from the lads who got beaten up the year before and my first job this year is to Turn that mentality around. We want to start winning games regularly again and then everything will start to improve.”
