'We have played well, defended well, and we've got better players of international quality in a big squad now.
'It has made a big difference having plenty of players who can step in when others are injured.
'There is lots of experience and lots of character. Our confidence is excellent. Everybody feels it and the atmosphere is fantastic. It used to be a quiet back four but now there is plenty of noise because people are confident in what they are doing.
'Sol Campbell has shown what we all knew he would. He's an outstanding player, but he's not the only one we have.
'Harry has brought some great signings to the club and playing with better players makes you a better player yourself.
'I'm happy to do a job at left-back for the team. That is no problem at all. I even manage to get forward now and again. The confidence is there.
'It was not the case last season. I never hid from admitting that but it is so much different now. It is because of what Harry has done.
'He has been given the chance to sign a lot of good players - and I believe he will keep doing that for two or three more years or however long he wants to stay.
'Within a couple of years I'm confident the team will be playing in the UEFA Cup, no problem. It is all there for us.'
Dejan is confident the club is on the up but we must keep our feet on the ground for now!
