On the nature of rotation:
We have progressed a lot off the pitch. Understanding the function and the demands of the club is very important and I’m pleased with the way every single player in the squad – and this has happened to all of us – has reacted to being rotated at some point in the season.
On the response from the team:
Everyone has responded by thinking that they need to improve, that they need to do more. There’s no disappointment – you don’t hear anyone talking badly about the manager’s decision. To have a whole squad of that calibre respond in the same way tells me a lot about the quality of the group.
On next season:
Now we want to build momentum and the best way to do that is by being consistent on the pitch and winning trophies. We are in a really strong position – I think we are getting better in all areas. That evolution must continue because the potential of this club is limitless. Let’s take advantage of that.
