“Losing the FA Cup final also took a big toll on me and affected me quite a lot, to have that experience again of losing in a final. I felt we were in a very good position and it’s a trophy I’ve always wanted to win after winning two FA Youth Cups so that was a horrible feeling.

“You never want that feeling again but football is always up and down and as a footballer, you learn about how to deal with those moments.”
