Phil Neville Says Team Spirit Will Save Everton

Everton are currently bottom of the Premier League however Phil Neville has told reports that Everton’s spirit will save them.

“When I joined the club five years ago we lost six of the first eight, including six on the trot. I couldn’t see where the next win was coming from.

“I remember saying to Leon Osman, ‘Do you think we’ll go down?’ He said, ‘Don’t worry.Everton are slow starters but the spirit will show through’.

“That comment has stayed with both of us ever since. The spirit now needs to shine through.

“We had qualified for the Champions Leaguethe previous season but that was a totally different kind of team – it was up-and-at-’em, in your faces. We have progressed from there.

“We have players who have played at World Cup finals. The quality needs to shine through now. It’s time to stand up and be tough.

“That doesn’t mean going out and kicking people, it means doing the right things all the time and winning football matches.

“There’s no point feeling sorry for ourselves. We have to go to Birmingham next week and, at the moment, draws aren’t good enough for us.”
