Unsworth: From day 1, Roberto set out a clear development pathway for youngsters
Everton under 21’s coach David Unsworth has hailed the clubs development pathway for young players and says that from day one Roberto Martinez set out a clear pathway to provide opportunities for young players.
Unsy also praised his current set of lads and says that their commitment to the cause is backed up with a real closeness that is demonstrated with their work ethic to achieve.
“There’s a tremendous level of desire and togetherness and a real sense of purpose, with a work ethic among the lads to back that up,” Unsworth said.
“They know that, if they work hard and develop in the way we believe they can, the opportunity can be there for them and we’ll encourage them every step of the way.
“From day one, Roberto set out a clear development pathway for young players here at Everton. He’s also repeatedly backed it up by providing opportunities for young players to grow, improve, develop and realise their full potential.
“Whether it’s Ross Barkley or John Stones, Brendan Galloway or Tyias Browning, Matty Pennington or Callum Connolly and Tom Davies, Roberto’s vision is clear and, obviously, it’s a very powerful incentive for every young player here at the Club.
“The School of Science has long been associated with Everton and we want to make sure this continues to be a place where young players can come and reach their potential while contributing to the overall philosophy which is to play attractive, winning football.”
Should any of the current Under 21’s be in the first team?
