Everton boss Ronald Koeman says squad can handle Europe

Everton boss Ronald Koeman says they'll be ready for a Europa League campaign next season.

Everton will play 41 games across three domestic competitions this season but can expect a much busier fixture list next year when the European ties are added to the schedule.

"The difference is that the team will be better fitness-wise than it was at the start of this season," Koeman told the club's website.

"The players also know the manager, they know the way we like to train, and the intensity we like to put into our training sessions, and that's different than it was last season.

"I also know the players better than I knew them last year so there are lots of differences in a positive way."
