Liam Rosenior has called on his Hull team-mates to treat their FA Cup near miss as the start of a new journey, not the end of their ambitions.
The Tigers played their part in a wonderful Wembley final, taking a 2-0 lead over Arsenal inside just eight minutes. They were hauled back in by the Gunners, who forced extra-time before Aaron Ramsey secured a 3-2 win with a clinical finish.
Europa League football beckons next term for Hull and Rosenior expects the squad’s expectations to be revised upwards based on recent efforts.
“We want to be successful and we can’t rest on our laurels now,” said the full-back.
“We want to grow as a club, we don’t just want to stand still.
“We also want to come back here and have more days like this one. I’m proud to play for this football club because it’s a special one.”
