Everton defender Michael Keane has revealed that he is remaining positive despite the Toffees difficult start to the Premier League campaign.
Keane has not had the best of starts to life at Everton as his team has secured only a single win during their first four matches of the season and the Toffees have failed to perform as expected so far this season.
Nevertheless, the young defender remains optimistic and said that experiencing defeats will make him only stronger and a better player.
He said about Everton’s poor form as well as his performances, “We have had games where we’ve played well and a few games where it hasn’t gone so well.
“But I am young and learning and that is going to be good for me. While they [defeats]are not enjoyable, you go through them and learn and it will make me a better player.”
The Englishman has not only shown promise with his performances on the pitch but has also displayed a level of maturity while making decisions off it, especially in regards to his career.
Signing for Everton might not be as glamorous as joining Manchester United, who were interested in his services over the summer, but it will provide him the ideal platform to play regular football and grow as a footballer overall.
The future for the young defender looks bright at the moment and under the tutelage of manager Ronald Koeman, who himself was a legendary defender; the 24-year-old can surely improve his game and establish himself as a big name in English football in the foreseeable future.
