Everton right-back Seamus Coleman has been singing the praises of new Toffees boss Marco Silva.
The Goodison Park outfit have got their season off to a decent start, drawing 2-2 away to Wolves in their opening fixture, before beating Southampton 2-1 at home last Saturday.
Coleman captained Everton at the weekend on his 200th Premier League appearance, and the Republic of Ireland international revealed afterwards just how impressed he has been with Portuguese coach Silva.
“He is very demanding, but that is what you want from your manager,” Coleman told Sky Sports.
“Ten years I have been here now, and I have not really been close to winning a cup so I want demanding managers, and he most certainly is that.
“He is very dedicated to his job – you can see that after two or three days, the work he puts in at every level. You have to play well to stay in the team because he will have no qualms about changing it.
“He has that hard edge, definitely, but from what I have seen he is very approachable and a great man but with all these great managers he won’t shy away from making decisions when he needs to.”
