He said: "The league is stronger than last year. A lot of teams have got new singings and it will be very tough to win this year.
"We have three new managers with clubs competing for the trophy, and that's a good thing in terms of the interest of the fans.
"But I believe we'll be competing to win the trophy like every year. We're still a good team, we have some young players coming through, we won the title last season and I think we'll be getting better and better. It's made us stronger.
"I'm very pleased with our squad. I think we're still the strongest team and ready to compete for all trophies. If we get new signings then good but I think we have everything."
