Everton veteran Barry: Koeman demands higher standards - even with head tennis!

Everton veteran Gareth Barry has revealed how standards inside the club have been lifted under Ronald Koeman.

Barry reveals an anecdote involving head tennis as an example.

"For example, one morning this week, a team was losing heavily at head tennis and he wanted to know why. He doesn't want anyone losing their focus and with good reason.

"One team shouldn't get beat so heavily at anything within the club, whether it's head tennis, five-a-side or on a Saturday."
