The 29-year-old cites the example of Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography, where the former Manchester United manager talks about the hunger for success, and claims that his teammates are sticking true to the words of the Red Devils legend.
He said: "When you win a Premier League title it feels a bit surreal for a couple of weeks. But when I came back to training I was immediately struck that the hunger is still there.
"You can see it among the team. Everyone is just buzzing to be back.
"I've read Sir Alex Ferguson's book where he talks about not losing your hunger. I didn't experience that when I walked into the dressing room.
"I experienced a bunch of players who were just as hungry as last season."
