Koeman: Europa League is very important for Everton
Everton tactician Ronald Koeman recently confirmed that if the Europa League is one of the main agenda for his team, now the Toffees are waiting for the draw to know their opponents in the play-offs Situs Poker.
The Dutchman has brought Everton now just one more round from the group phase. They managed a 2-0 aggregate win over Slovak Ruzomberok in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s only goal in Thursday’s second leg match equips Leighton Baines’ goal set at Goodison Park in the first leg last week.
Everton have spent quite a bit of money to add to the strength of the team and Koeman, who two seasons ago failed in the Europa League play-offs while still tackling Southampton, wants to see an investment that the club is doing can produce a good performance in European club competitions.
“This competition is always important to me,” Koeman told local media.
“I love being in Europe, it’s important for our experience. Great for clubs, players and fans. ”
“It’s not easy to get into the group phase but we’ll do our best to be there.”
