“It is a great thing for us but it could be an even greater thing for them.

“We won the treble last season which was very difficult. We knew it would be very difficult to do exactly the same but we still have the chance to win the treble and make history and as a player you want to be part of the history.

“If we manage to do it it will be a great achievement for all of us.”
