Everton boss Ronald Koeman is hoping he can help to create a special part of the club’s history over the coming years.
Koeman was appointed as the club’s new manager earlier this week and he is hoping he can help to bring some silverware to Goodison Park.
Everton’s history is littered with trophies, although they last won a major title in 1995 when they lifted the FA Cup.
The Dutchman admitted he will need to add to his current squad but insists they can climb the Premier League table and hopes to create history.
Koeman said: “Everton, of course, is a club with a really big history. In terms of league titles, we are the fourth most successful club in the history of English football with nine championships, as many as Manchester City and Chelsea combined. Now it is about what we can do to claim our own special part in this history.
“We want to make the team strong and we will do this with all the people who are at Everton. In general, Everton had a strong squad last season. Of course, there will be changes in the squad but that is the same for every club ahead of a new season.
“I will be talking to people at the club over the weekend to make a plan over the next couple of weeks, then start pre-season and make sure we have a really strong team so we can fight for a high position in the Premier League table.”
