Everton boss Martinez: Lawrence making great impact

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is delighted with the impact of coach Dennis Lawrence at Finch Farm this season.

The Trinidad & Tobago World Cup veteran followed Martinez from Wigan Athletic last summer.

"Dennis is a structured, organised and disciplined coach," Martinez told the Liverpool Echo.

"He has a very, very good football eye but brings a different approach with being a foreign player coming into the English game. The angle about how you understand the British game is very different to when you are brought up here.

"Obviously he has been here long enough to understand the differences of the British game - obviously his experiences of playing abroad and in a World Cup allows you to see things from a different angle and his input is very different.

"He is reliable, and a really hard working member of the staff and the perfect figure for the Everton way."
