It was a very intense end to the season, I'm enjoying the break right now but already looking forward to next season. The club have made a decision and I respect any decision which they make. I'm just happy that my legacy with this club continues. The club's ambition has always been clear, we've shown that in the past and we will continue to do so.
I had a wonderful break with my family, it was very enjoyable but now the work starts. I have to start planning for pre-season. We've lost a few players who are out of contract and we've already signed a couple of players, so there will be a slight change, but there won't be a complete overhaul of the squad. I won't discuss now what we will do in the market, all of that takes place behind the scenes, but we will try to make the right signings for the functionality of the squad.
We certainly want to do better in the league; last season was a difficult one and we want to bridge that gap between us and the two Manchester teams and obviously continue to do well in the cup competitions. We return in early July, but the players at the Euros will come back later and there's also the possibility of some of our players going to the Olympics as well.
A new season always brings hope, enthusiasm and excitement. We have a good team and we will try to improve where necessary, but we have a good team already. The fans have been superb, last season and over the years when I've been here, and I'm sure they are looking forward to it.
