Ronald Koeman

Koeman enjoying role at bigger club

everton fans at anfieldEverton boss Ronald Koeman says he is enjoying the start to his Everton career, and said he knew it would be a step up from managing Southampton.

Koeman took charge in June this year and picked out, in particular, the away support that Everton receive whenever they play away from Goodison Park.

He said, “I knew from my football career that Everton was a big club.

“And with all the respect, a bigger club than Southampton is.

“It is a new challenge and, after the first two meetings with the board of the club, I felt it would be really enjoyable to step in and so far it is going well.

“You feel the history of the club and the support of the fans but you need time to understand to see.

“There are a lot of new faces, it is a new management and that always takes time.

“But the results have been positive and that makes the job a bit more comfortable.

“But if you have a lot of experience in football then you know what happened last week does not count, it is all about the next.

“When I became manager of Everton they told me that Everton was one of the four or five clubs who always take the maximum number of fans to away games.

“That is great support, great support for the players and you feel yourself supported and that makes the team stronger and it is really enjoyable when you get a win away and you can celebrate with all the fans.”
