It’s been over 20 years since Everton celebrated winning their last major trophy, but according to Ronald Koeman, this could well change very soon.
We like to win trophies and that’s a feeling that not all the players have at Everton. We have a lot of young players and that experience of winning titles is really important for Everton. It’s one of the reasons we tried to bring him back
the Dutch manager told reporters referring to Wayne Rooney and his return to Everton after 13 years spent at Manchester United.
When we spoke, it was about the ambition. He showed me that he likes the pressure. He’ll have pressure next season and he’s used to that
the Toffees’ manager said, excited about having a player like Rooney under his commands.
Everybody knows the qualities of Wayne. He’s really a striker but players with that quality can play out of position. He can be a 10 behind the striker, a free role from the left, a nine, a seven
Koeman said, adding
some players need pressure to get the best out of themselves. He’s 32 in October and that’s still young for football. The ambition he showed was enough to convince me.
