Kean on Champions League goals
Here are your Everton evening headlines for Thursday, October 29.
All the latest news and rumors from Goodison Park, including initial doubts about the transfer of James Rodriguez, Moise Kean comments on his goal-laden PSG form and the expanded academy network
“Towards the end of the first half we suffered. But we played a good game and held out until the end,” Kean said after the game, as the echo reads.
The Frenchman is on loan to Everton’s Parisian players for a full season and scored both goals in the second half, when Thomas Tuchel’s team scored an important victory in Turkey.
Moise Kean made the difference for Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League win last night in Istanbul Basaksehir.
Australian club admitted to Everton Academy
“Above all I am satisfied with my team colleagues. We played away, which is not easy.
“We held out and won the game. This start will give me strength.”
The Australian club, which was founded in 2012, belongs to the academy alongside Joondalup City, Columbus United, Schulz Academy and Everton de Vina del Mar.
Everton has expanded its international academy network by making Queensland-based Western Pride the fifth club in the alliance.
Everton’s U23 boss David Unsworth, the director of the Everton Academy, is quoted in the Echo as saying, “Western Pride’s new status as a member of the Everton International Academy Affiliate Program marks the next phase of their ambition and growth and will ensure that they receive the best athletic knowledge and insight from our Academy coaches.
“At Everton, we have a passion for developing quality footballers, but also for helping them grow as people. This is something we share with Western Pride, a great Academy club with teams of all ages.
“I am confident that this new partnership can help Western Pride achieve the goals they have set themselves for the promotion of their club as a whole and in particular for the development of their players.
Martyn convinced by James
“We look forward to a close cooperation in the coming years”.
The Colombian playmaker was the marquee of the summer in Goodison Park after his move from Real Madrid.
Martyn claims that James – despite his obvious technical talent – impressed him so much with his attitude and commitment to other areas of his game.
Everton’s former goalkeeper Nigel Martyn says that James Rodriguez, who re-signed the club, convinced him despite his initial doubts.
