Ronald Koeman - Under No Pressure From Club Owners

Ronald Koeman - Under No Pressure From Club Owners

Everton boss Ronald Koeman has been on pressure recently following their poor performances in all competitions, running on the back of a defeat to Lyon during the mid week European game, Ronald Koeman still got the club owners behind him.


Everton were one of the big spenders during the summer, spending £150m but now find themselves with one win in seven Premier League games and sitting just two points above relegation.

Asked about Club Owners Support he said  "Yeah, that's not changed. Of course we have daily and weekly contact, I know everybody is a little bit worried about the situation but that's normal.

"It's not time to stop and talk about reasons why [we haven't lived up to expectation]. We need to take the situation how it is now and prepare the team for Sunday.

"The position we are in the league is not the position Everton needs to stay and that's what we need to change.

"I still believe in the players and the signings we did in the summer because maybe everybody can have some doubts about several of the signings. The future will show that the signings we made were in fact good signings."

Everton have struggled against smaller opponents than Arsenal but the Dutchman believes his side could stand a chance against the Gunners this weekend.

"If you look back to last season, we had some great games against some of the big teams in the Premier League. And why not against Arsenal?" he told reporters.

"Arsenal is not unbeatable, it's also not the strongest team away from home this season.

"We know we need to improve, we need to play better but I think if we bring the fight and the aggression on the pitch, in a good way, then we have a good chance to win the game.

"They rested ten players, who will start maybe on Sunday. We took the decision to give some rest to players for Sunday and I think it's a great game to play."
