Mark Hughesâ€™ side avoided relegation on the final day last term but significant activity in the transfer market has raised expectations ahead of the new campaign.
â€śWe are moving forward and improving all the time but itâ€™s only our second season in the Premier League so we canâ€™t set our targets too high,â€ť Cisse told the London Evening Standard.
â€śWe deserve to be where we are but we are still growing as a team so staying up again this year is the first priority. That has to be the main objective â€” and not to be too greedy. Then after that, we will see. Mark [Hughes] deserves all the credit for keeping us in the Premier League last season and I trust him and Tony Fernandes. With them, the club can only go forward. There is a lot of potential. Tony is a winner and he is doing everything he can to bring in some players and build a good team.â€ť
