James Rowe has translated a transcript of the first Dutch interview that Ronald Koeman has given since becoming Everton manager.
“I have learnt in life that you can't wait and you cannot predict the future. All the big clubs have managers in place so, if you get the chance to come to a club that is very ambitious, one that has a new owner and where there are possibilities to win things, then I view that as a challenge.
“We have a great striker in Romelu Lukaku although rumours persist with Graziano Pelle who I know from my time at Feyenoord he is also proving to have a great Euro 2016 so far but I will talk with the staff at Everton and discuss what we need in order to make the team better.“It is always important by the first meeting to make a good impression and to get results as expectations here are higher at Everton than at Southampton but I am used to that and I am happy here at Everton.”
James is a writer from the UK, who has been living in Amsterdam for 10 years as contributor and translator of Dutch football news for Football-Oranje.com, the Number 1 English language site dedicated to Dutch football.
