Everton skipper predicts 'special' season

Published Add your comment

Everton captain Phil Neville believes the club are on the brink of something special after an up and down season last time out.

The Toffees enjoyed a late resurgence in the Barclays Premier League last term, finishing seventh in the top flight and notably knocking Chelsea out of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.

Neville is confident the future can be even brighter for David Moyes' side though, and the 34-year-old has heralded the rise of the youth team on Merseyside as a reason for optimism.

"The Under-18s have just won the Youth League, we've got young players coming through, a manager who is not afraid to blood young players and I think the future is bright," said the veteran full back, who has more recently made his name as a defensive midfielder.


"I think we're so close to something very special here. The foundations are as strong as ever, the spirit and the togetherness of the manager, the players, the staff, the supporters, the whole club is still there."

Everton face a difficult start to the season, travelling to White Hart Lane on the opening day of the season to face Harry Redknapp's Tottenham Hotspur.
