New Everton boss Roberto Martinez has asked for patience to put his own stamp on the club.
"Any period where you want to change things, that's going to take a little bit of time. I'm trying to get to know what the fans want and look through the DNA of Everton, and that's important for me.
"I think we are very good at things but to achieve things you need to be outstanding at something and that takes time. When you're trying to take that next step, the changes need to be difficult to achieve, otherwise you will never get the benefit.
"It's just having the patience and the togetherness of understanding the period we're going through, but at the same time being able to enjoy it and making sure we're still competitive and winning football games while that happens."
