Mori: We can make the Champions League
Everton new by Ramiro Funes Mori believes that his side can battle at the top end of the table and also believes that his side can make the Champions League places.
The South American highlighted the clubs perfect mix of experience and youth and says this will stand them in good stead to get into Europe, whether that is the Champions League or Europa League.
“I spoke to Roberto Martinez a lot before the move. I believe we can win a lot of games and fight for the top places in the league. We can make the Europa League or Champions League as we have a good young team with plenty of experience too,” he said.
He added: “I always watched the European leagues, especially the Premier League. It’s one of the best leagues in the world. I did not think twice about wanting to come.
“The pitches are very different from South America but the atmosphere is every bit as good and intense.
“I speak English as I lived in Dallas for nine years and went to school there. It makes it easier to communicate with my teammates and the manager.”
“It’s very important to get my experience as a player,” he said.
“Jagielka and Stones are very good players. Playing with them is something important for me as I can learn from them, even though Stones is a younger player.”
