Brighton & Hove Albion captain Bruno says he is in brilliant shape ahead of the club’s first-ever season in the Premier League.
The Seagulls skipper made 42 appearances last season, and is focused on being ready for every game in the top flight.
He said, "I'm going to try to keep playing week after week. I took the decision to keep playing because I am feeling good, I am working so hard and I try to play every single game.
"Of course, you never know as it's about performance, it's about the team, it's about a lot of factors that help you as well, but my aim is to play in every single game."
"In terms of physicality it's easier, but the quality of the players and the standard of the teams makes it much harder.
"It changes from the physical to the more mental stuff. You have to think quicker in the Premier League and be more clever, that's the main thing.
"Experience helps a lot if you can mix it with good fitness.”
The Spaniard believes that players’ careers can now last much longer, and feels he still has plenty to offer.
"Football is changing. We know much more now about fitness, recovery stuff. Players can have a longer career.
"Years ago they said when you are 28 or 29 that's the best age, the best mix between experience and physicality, but I'm feeling really good.
"I'm looking after myself, the experience is there. I hope that is going to help me. It's really important to find a balance."
