Jordan Pickford experienced a breakthrough season as he became a regular Everton’s number one and he was one of the key players in the national team’s road to the World Cup semifinals.
And the experienced Dutch keeper, Marteen Stekelenburg, insisted that he extended his contract with the Toffees also because he wants to help his colleague to be even better and continue growing as one of the Premier League finest shot-stoppers.
The former AS Roma keeper spoke about this situation as he said, according to fourfourtwo.com:
“Jordan had a very good 2017-18 season and played superbly as well for England at the World Cup.”
“I understand my role and I will try to compete with Jordan and push him to continue to get better as well.”
“For me, it was tough last year because I had an injury and it took me a few months to come back from that.”
“But I’m fit now, I’ve played in our pre-season games and I’m very much looking forward to Jordan getting back here so we can push one another.”
