Everton's Jagielka: Round already making impact

Everton defender Phil Jagielka says new assistant manager Steve Round has already made a positive impression.

"Steve has taken a few sessions and it's clear already that he will help improve us," said Jagielka. "I had worked with Steve before when I played for England ‘B' during my time at Sheffield United, so I had an idea of what he could do.

"He loves his football and that enthusiasm rubs off on all the lads. I'm sure he will help freshen things up.

"He has seen Everton from a different perspective in the last few years and he is obviously going to help the Gaffer.

"Although he has worked at such a high level, he is still very young in terms of being a coach and I'm sure he is going to have an impact through the course of next season and beyond. It's nice for the Gaffer to have someone to take a bit of the pressure off."
