“I’ve loved every minute of it and I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve been at this brilliant club for so long,” Roche said.

“When you come to a club, you don’t envisage you’re going to be there that long.

“At this level, there’s always one or two-year contracts being handed out.

“To make it 10 years is something I’m really pleased with.”

Watch as the 36-year-old discusses how long he can continue to play.
