Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori delighted to be back in action

Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori was back in action yesterday for the U23s.

Funes Mori wants to hand Everton boss Sam Allardyce his second big defensive boost in a week after making his comeback from a 10-month injury absence last night.

The Argentinian defender played 45 minutes of Everton Under-23s 4-0 defeat at Arsenal.

"That was my first 45 minutes, so the manager will now decide when I can get in the first team. But I am feeling good and ready to come back," said Funes Mori.

"Of course, it has been a while. You do not forget how to play football but I just need to get used to the tempo and atmosphere of the matches again."
