Tim Cahill has famously said it was the likes of Hibbert who showed him what it meant to be an Evertonian.
"That's nice to hear," the full-back told evertonfc.com. "Tim knows all about it now and he loves the Club.
"But it is up to us local lads to let the new players, especially the foreign lads, know what it means to play here. You need to tell them as soon as possible to get it into them what Everton is about and how the city is.
"I've grown up with it really. It's in you and being here so long you know the ins and outs of everything and what it means to people at the Club. You want Everton to be the best and do the best so you're asking your people for their best."
