Paul Robinson tipped Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to get even better as he admitted the shot-stopper is still learning.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England goalkeeper claimed that Pickford previously let his eccentricities and excitement affect his game.
The 25-year-old Toffees star admitted after the recent 2-1 win over Newcastle United that he didn’t let Magpies supporters rattle him like he did last season.
Robinson explained that Pickford needed to start showing maturity in his game and added that he thought the keeper had achieved that task.
When asked about Pickford starting to show maturity especially against Newcastle United, Robinson told Football Insider: “Yeah he’s had to, I think he’s had to show maturity in his game and in his personal life.
“I think he has matured, he’s still learning, time is on his side.
“I rate him as a goalkeeper, he is an excellent shot-stopper.
“For want of a better phrase, due to his eccentricities and excitement, he used to get too involved in games, too wound-up, but as he’s growing, he is learning.
“He is becoming a lot more steady, lot more reliable and I do rate him as a goalkeeper.
“And I still think that he is able to get better and there’s more to come.”
Pickford has regularly featured for Toffees this season as he has played every minute of the Premier League campaign so far.
In the 25 league outings he has made, the England international has conceded 36 goals while also keeping seven clean sheets.
