De Jong is gearing up for another season with City and insists he is ready for the manager's rotation policy.
"The team is the main thing now," he stressed.
"Obviously everybody wants to play for themselves individually, but it's not always going to happen, because we have a big squad. But for the team we just have to go now and try and win as many trophies as we can.
"A lot of teams and a lot of people are going to look up to us after winning the Premiership and we are the team to beat at the moment. But for us as a group, we always keep it calm and we just have to focus on what we do best and that is to play football on the pitch. We just have to do our best."
