Winks says a key to their progress under the Argentine has been the team spirit inside the club.
"You can feel the family atmosphere the manager has created," said Winks.
"Everyone gets on really well. There are no big egos - no-one gets on better with one person than anyone else.
"We obviously have incredible talent in the squad but when you have that, mixed with humble attitudes and players who want to improve, that can only breed success.
"The manager brought me through at the age of 17 to where I am today. It has been an incredible journey and one I want to stay on."
