Koeman: I don’t like friendlies to be too friendly!

ronaldkoeman1Everton boss Ronald Koeman says that he is pleased that his team were given a tough test against Dynamo Dresden in pre-season this evening.

The Dutchman says that he doesn’t like friendly games to be “too friendly” and was pleased that his side were made to work hard against a side who start their season next weekend.

“I think it was a good game,” said the manager.

“The intensity was high which is what you need in pre-season and it was a good test.

“OK, the result is not what you like to see but we had some good opportunities to score in the second half.

“Overall I’m happy with the intensity as that’s what you like to see in pre-season.

“For most of the players it was good to have 90 minutes because we need that.

“After tomorrow we only have two friendlies so it’s good to give everyone the chance.

“I don’t like friendlies to be too friendly.  They start their league next week which means they’re physically stronger than us so we had to work hard.

“We have some good players who can score from free kicks.

“You can win games with set-plays, it’s good to see.”
