De Sousa after reaching maiden TV Quarter-Final: “This is a dream for me”

Jose de Sousa survived a fight back from Dave Chisnall to reach his maiden TV Quarter-Final with a 10-7 victory in the Grand Slam of Darts.

De Sousa spoke afterwards and his confidence was up there as he called it the ‘best year’ of his life in darting terms.

"This is a dream for me," said De Sousa. "I'm in the Grand Slam for the first time and in the quarter-finals, so it's amazing.”

"It was a strange game, but I'm happy that I won. I started much better than Chizzy and I punished him, then I missed a little bit and he punished me, and at the end I came strong again."

"It's the best year of my life in darts," he added. "For me it is not a surprise, but for many people maybe it is. My confidence is getting better and better and I'm starting to play like the top players."
