"It's made us hungrier"

13 May 2013

Morrison to learn from experience

Sean Morrison believes that he has become a better player following a season in the Barclays Premier League.

Speaking to BBC Radio Berkshire, the 22-year-old centre half was optimistic about the Royals' future under Nigel Adkins.

"We can take a lot from the season, lots of us had not played in the Premier League before, we've had a taste and it will make us hungrier," he said.

"Personally it was a goal to play at the highest level against the best players; I've had that chance but the season has ended in disappointment. Going down we'll be even more hungry to come straight up. The reaction from the lads after QPR was fantastic, going to Fulham and winning, all the hard work with the new boss' philosophy clicked. There's been a progression since Arsenal, we've been better, controlling games and in the last few we had more possession than the opposition for the first time over the season.

"I've spoken to the new manager a lot, I am learning how to play his way, I've never been under a manager who wants to pass from the back. It's a learning curve that will add to my game. I like to do the horrible parts of the game and if I can add passing to it, that's the direction the game is going. Managers want players to be comfortable and if I can add that to my game I'll be in good stead for the future.  Growing up in League One I had to come to terms quickly with the horrible part of defending, strikers running all day, wanting to bully you and put you about. From the age of 17 or 18 I learned quickly. I was forced into learning it, I love that part, blocks, tackles and now I want to add the other parts as well."
