Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that he is not giving up on both Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaasen after an underwhelming season so far at Goodison Park.
Sandro was shipped out on loan to Sevilla to gain more vital first team football, whilst Klaason remains on the Merseyside fighting for his place.
Speaking in a press conference, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Allardyce reveals that the first season in England for foreign players can often be tough.
“He’s tried to fight for his place the whole of this season and like many, many players that come here the first time around, they don’t work.
“So it’s season two that really counts. You want them to work in season. You can’t be patient because nobody will let you be patient but in year two, who knows,” Alardyce stated whilst talking about Klaasen.
Both players were brought to the club by Ronald Koeman, who was sacked before christmas after a string of poor results.
Prior to his Spanish transfer, Sandro had not been involved in a Premier League matchup since December, and Klaasen hasnt seen the pitch since September.
Although the accumulative price tag is not too hefty, some fans have labelled the pair as Premier League flops, but the fact that their manager is still considering them in his plans must fill the players with confidence.
