Sean O'Driscoll says his Bristol City players will have to show total commitment to the club in npower League One next season.
Many of the club's star names have been linked with moves elsewhere following relegation from the Championship, but the Robins head coach says if transfers away from Ashton Gate fail to materialise then the players cannot feel sorry for themselves.
He told the Bristol Evening Post: "I'm sure we've got players who want to leave and play in the Championship. But the Championship has got to want them and be able to take their wages on board.
"Everybody wants to be successful and the way to do that is to work hard. You have to want to be a part of something, you cannot just sit around and sulk.
"I want to be manager of Real Madrid, but I don't speak Spanish. If I want to work over there, then I've got to do something about that.
"If anybody in any walk of life wants to better themselves they have to be motivated to want to do well. They have to be prepared to put all the things in place they need to be successful."
