'It is up to the club' - Koeman shares thoughts on Everton future
By Abigail Withey
Ronald Koeman has revealed that that he isn’t at all worried about losing his job as Everton manager and states that if he isn’t good enough then the club will find his replacement.
The Dutch boss signed a three-year-deal with the Toffees last summer which ties him to the club until 2019.
Koeman guided the Blues to seventh place in the Premier League table during his debut campaign which allowed them to feature in the Europa League this season.
However, the Merseyside club haven’t secured the results they were hoping for so far this season which has led to questions being raised around whether Koeman will stay at Goodison Park.
“I am not worried about my future because I have belief in myself and the players,” the Toffees boss revealed, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“Finally, if the club makes another decision it is up to the club. If I am worried about my situation, how can you live?
“I like to continue and I like to finish the contract but I am not worried. If you are worried in this job, there is no life.
“There are 20 Premier League clubs, 20 managers, maybe 10-12-13 managers worried every day about their job?
“If I am not good enough, they will take another one. That is how I see this situation.”
Everton are currently sat in 14th place in the Premier League standings this season with seven points after securing two wins, a draw and three losses over the past few weeks.
The Blues had a series of difficult opponents in successive weekends against the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United which all ended without a win for the Toffees and noticeably deflated the spirits of the squad and fans.
Koeman and his squad will be preparing to host Burnley on Sunday afternoon and will know how vital securing a strong three points will be.
