you’re the best team in England and the best team in Europe is a great feeling. For me, though, I’d say the Premier League trophy is the better one to win. You play 38 games over the season against some very strong sides and you have to be so consistent to win it.
Is there a feeling that last season was the start of something special?
I hope that’s the case. We have a good mix of young players and some older heads to provide experience. I hope we can go on to win these trophies again but sometimes, as we saw in Moscow, small margins separate winners and losers. Little things can decide big games, so I can only hope that those tiny margins go in our favour. I definitely believe that this squad can win more trophies. We have great team spirit and the players are hungry for more success.
Every season the boss talks to the players and sets out the challenge ahead. Has he done that yet?
He hasn’t specifically addressed us, but the players know exactly what needs to be done. We want to win the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the European Cup – everything that’s possible. We’ve worked hard during pre-season to make sure we’re ready to give it our best shot.
