The Ireland International, Seamus Coleman, has signed a new deal with his current club Everton according to which he would remain a Toffee for the next 5 years.
Coleman had a great 2013-14 Season at Goodison Park. Roberto Martinez, the Everton boss, gave him the playing opportunities right since the start and he didn’t let his boss down. He put up quality performances in most of the games and showed his development as a player.
Coleman’s good form at the club level in the last season had some effects on his international career too as he got the opportunity to lead his country against Germany in a friendly fixture.
Speaking to the press after signing the contract extension, Coleman said, “I didn’t have to think much before signing the new deal. I have enjoyed myself a lot at this club in the last few seasons. I am in love with the club to be honest. I have got quite familiar with the guys over here now. So, this was one of the easiest decisions for me.”
“Roberto is a very good manager. He has come in and done well. He is taking the team towards the right direction and we all are trying to give him our 100% support.”
Roberto Martinez’s contract has also been extended by the Everton board for the next 5 years recently. He had been appointed last season after David Moyes’ departure to Manchester United and he guided the team to a top 5 finish.
A few more wins could have seen Everton qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, but, it wasn’t to be. However, their fans would be really satisfied with their overall performance in the season. They secured 79 points in 38 games with 21 wins.
