Realistic Everton aiming for seventh heaven: Koeman

By Staff Reporter

Ronald Koeman stressed he has plenty of ambition but is also a realist after branding any suggestion Everton should finish in the Premier League's top four this term as "ridiculous".

Last Sunday the Toffees boss called for some realism in response to Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho's comment that Everton, having spent over £140million during the summer, are a club who "wants to at least secure a top four position".

Koeman, whose side are 18th and suffered their fourth straight loss in all competitions when they were beaten 4-0 by United that day, added that what he regarded as realistic was "the same as last season", when Everton came seventh.

Asked about those remarks yesterday as he looked ahead to tomorrow's home clash with Bournemouth, the Dutchman said: "It's crazy, ridiculous to put a lot of pressure on the team by saying we need to finish in the top four.

"Everybody has signed new players. We signed some young players, and (on Wednesday, in the Carabao Cup win against Sunderland) we played with six or seven boys of 19, 20, 21, 22.

"That is the future, it needs time, and that is normal. Let's make the next step."
