But he insists that he and his teammates have learned lessons from that near miss.
"You can learn from everything. Even if you fail. It was a hard time but we didn't do too badly last season and we'll try to improve," he said.

"It's great to be in this position, we've worked really hard to be here but we cannot rest. There's no time to rest."
