Everton FC Director of Football, Marcel Brands says that the Toffees are making progress under manager Marco Silva, and that the performances in the last couple of months of the campaign lead to great optimism for the new season.
Brands told evertontv via Everton’s official website “In the final months of last season, you saw the style of play that we want to play. Marco and his staff worked hard on that. The style of play was coming more to all the players. It gave us the results and results give confidence.
He added “That was good to see and hopefully we can continue when we start the Premier League again in August. The fixtures have been announced, which is always a special moment, and I was very curious to see it. We have some special things. In the first six games, we have two promoted teams (Aston Villa and Sheffield United).
He concluded by saying “I think the start of the season is really important.”
