We have not performed as well as we would have liked: Daniel Sams

He just talked about keeping it simple and relaxing,” he added.
“Obviously, there were some challenges, some good times around, we (MI) haven’t quite performed the way we’d like to, but we are excited about what’s to come next year,” the MI player added. He believed that some of the squad members learned a lot throughout the season. According to Sams, the team’s season was not ideal.
