‘I believe that we need to work on keeping these young guys one year longer,’ Terzic told The Athletic.
‘In my first season [as interim manager], I was able to put Jadon, Jude and Erling on the pitch, but that was their only year together.
‘That was also partly due to COVID-19 and empty stadiums, there were financial considerations.
‘But if we can get to the point where it’s two or three years of such a trio, maybe we can break the mould.’
