“The next thing a lot of lads will join up with international teams. When you join up with other players, you probably get a bit of a ribbing, that’s part and parcel of being a footballer. They’ll probably forget about it playing for their countries but they’ll come back for pre-season.

“They’ve got to get that behind them as soon as possible. I’m sure Ole will get the lads together for the first game of pre-season and say ‘great last season, we’ve got to challenge this year, iron up the inconsistencies, and go again.’

“This year, there’s been progression. Third last year, just about on the last day, this year second place and cemented it a lot earlier too. Got to a final and had a great opportunity of winning, unfortunately we haven’t taken advantage of that. You’ve got to go again next year, be closer in the Premier League and be ready from the off.

“We got off to a really indifferent start this season, whether that’s down to Europa League exploits in Germany last year, but we were very inconsistent early on. We’ve got to iron all them out and go from the very start.”
