Everton defender Michael Keane senses attitude shift

 Everton defender Michael Keane has sensed an atmosphere shift this preseason.

Keane has explained how he believes his side will be fitter, stronger and sharper than they were last season. While the defender also hinted that his side will adopt a much more proactive approach in the forthcoming campaign.

He said: "[The manager] has been brilliant since he came in, he has galvanised a squad, got us pulling in the same direction, playing better football and getting better results.

"Coming in the middle of the season, it's not easy for a new manager to get all his ideas across, he'll be looking to do that more in this pre-season.

"We've only been back training for four days now and it's been really tough, we know we're going to be pushed in pre-season and that's a good thing.

“We weren't good enough last year - we needed to be fitter, sharper, stronger. I think we're definitely going to be that judging from the first four days where we've been back in.

“At the same time, it's enjoyable. A lot of football as well as running - not just running for the sake of it, mixing it up well. I think we'll be in good shape in a few weeks."
