The Albion skipper looked ahead to the remaining three games of the season.
Brighton & Hove Albion captain Bruno stressed the importance of his team-mates maintaining their focus ahead of tonight’s visit to Carrow Road, as the Seagulls look the secure the Sky Bet Championship title against Norwich City.
Victory over the Canaries will confirm Albion’s status as league champions, and Bruno explained how much securing top spot would mean to everyone at the football club.
He said, ”Of course, it's tough. The main aim is done but now we have to refocus again and try to win this title.
"We know how important it is for us, the club and for everyone. There are three massive games for us and we'll try to do our best.
"It's going to be a tough game. They are playing well now, getting a few good results and they've got real quality, some very good players.
“They smashed Reading. They can have a good day and you have a really bad day, so we need to be aware of that and take the game really seriously.”
Chris Hughton’s team returned for training on Wednesday morning after celebrating the club’s promotion to the Premier League, and Bruno commented on their first day back.
"We had a running session, but the legs fly when you are happy. It's easier to come back to training after this achievement.”
The club captain was one of four Albion players included the PFA Championship Team of the Year on Thursday morning, and he was delighted to being recognised by his fellow professionals.
“I'm really happy about that. To be in the starting 11, chosen by other players, is so important. I'm really pleased. They play against everyone, so it means a lot to me.”
