“It [Everton] is a wonderful country for football, a wonderful club, but very difficult to manage. Especially because the owners are very involved, which makes them easy to influence. That makes it very difficult sometimes...of course, we did good things. Only that was also the frustration. You don’t get the grip that is needed to really change things.
“We have made steps internally, in the youth academy and with the transfers from the first year. But then you see the impatience, and you fall back after having made steps by simple things. That’s a real shame because it’s a beautiful club with beautiful fans,” says Marcel Brands. [Sport Witness via ESPN]

“Everton is like a family to me, so whatever they want me to do, I will do. Whatever happens I will be there fighting to be that No.1. I know that I am ready to play games and I think I have shown that, especially in the last two years...I’m still young and I still have a lot of time, but I will always be eager to play because that’s who I am. I’ll always give my best, every single day, to be a starter for whichever team...so if it’s best to go on loan again, I will. If they want me to play, I will play, and if they want me to leave I will leave. I’m ready to go anywhere now, I just have to play. I need that game time and I’m ready for it,” says Joao Virginia.
