“We’re in a very strong po­si­tion, but we mustn’t let com­pla­cency come in. The bar con­tin­ues to be raised off the field as well as on it. We have been ex­tremely suc­cess­ful on the tro­phy front over the last 10 years and we have the same ob­jec­tives as we planned in the past.

“We must keep mov­ing for­ward. We want to be suc­cess­ful.
