Rodwell glad to have senior pros around him

Jack Rodwell is pleased to have senior professionals around him in order to help him bounce back from injury and stay focussed when he has been left ouf of the Everton side.

“I just stopped still because of one thing and another,” he said.

“When I have been out of the team, I haven’t been able to get back in.

“The couple of seasons before that, I had felt as if I had done really well, I’d played in a lot of games and I have tended to play in age groups ahead of the ones I was in.

“I just hope it’s finally behind me now and I am looking forward to next season already.

Rodwell also revealed that having senior professionals around him like Phil Neville has helped him recover.

“I’m a strong person and when I am not in the team, I can motivate myself to keep focused and be prepared for when I get called on,” explained Rodwell.

“There are a lot of senior pros to look up to. Phil Neville has been great in terms of the pointers he has given me.

“He’s told me what to do and when to do it when I have been injured, how to deal with any frustrations I have had when I have not been picked.

“It’s been great to have him around to get that kind of support.”
