Ronald Koeman praised Muhamed Besic for grasping his opportunity with both hands on his first Everton start for 16 months.

The Bosnian midfielder, who was last named in the Blues’ starting line-up in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park in April 2016, missed the entire 2016/17 season after sustaining a cruciate ligament injury.

He returned to anchor the midfield alongside Morgan Schneiderlin on Thursday evening, as the Toffees recorded a 1-1 draw at Hajduk Split’s Stadion Poljud to progress to the group stage of the UEFA Europa League with a 3-1 aggregate victory.

And manager Koeman was impressed with Besic’s efforts, after being forced to wait patiently for his chance to impress in the first team.

“I am really pleased,” said Koeman. “He is working hard after coming back from a big injury. I think he’s now really at that level that we need and what he needs to get a chance in the team. That’s really positive.

“I like the boy, he is working hard and, of course, he was patient to wait for his chance. He took his chance tonight. He played well and was an important player in midfield for us.

"Okay, sometimes he needs to control himself a little bit better with his tackles, but he is still young and I am pleased he is back on the level that he needs and we need as a team.”

Sounds like he probably was the reason we let Barry go then. Koeman thinks he can be of use to the first team so if he sees it then that's fine with me.

Its a measure of how far we have come in a short space of time that people are not sure about Besic, yet not too long ago we idolised Lee Carsley.............

16 months out!

There is a LOT more to come from this lad if he steers clear of injuries and can listen to Koeman.

Y'all have no idea. This first game back was not the time to judge him. See what he's done for us by the end of the season.

Done alright last night and Koeman obviously see’s something in him so I’m willing to be a patient with him now and reign in the slagging him off.
