“I don’t do this to my players at Everton because you get injuries again”
Koeman said: “When James came back from Ireland the message from Everton’s medical staff was that he was massively overloaded.
“I would like to have more commitment from the player of Everton because we pay the player.
“But he was in a very difficult situation and it is ridiculous that he has surgery, five to six weeks out, three training sessions, plays 90 minutes and then, after three days, he plays another 80 minutes.
“Of course he is massively overloaded. I don’t do this to my players at Everton because you get injuries again.
