Three cap­tains is the se­cret to Tof­fee’s suc­cess, says Jagielka

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - THE TITLE -

THE se­cret be­hind Ever­ton’s con­fi­dent open­ing to the cam­paign is hav­ing three cap­tains in the dress­in­groom, ac­cord­ing to Phil Jagielka.

The de­fender of­fi­cially wears the arm­band, but says he is de­lighted to share lead­er­ship with Wayne Rooney and Ash­ley Wil­liams.

‘Be­cause of the ex­pe­ri­ence Wayne Rooney has, when he talks, the at­tack­ing young lads es­pe­cially lis­ten. It’s great for the man­ager to have some­one like that. He’s a cap­tain whether he wears the arm­band on not,’ in­sists Jagielka.

‘We’ve also got Ash­ley Wil­liams who is a cap­tain so it’s nice for the man­ager to have these ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers around the place to help the crop of young play­ers we have and make sure ev­ery­one presses on in the right di­rec­tion.’

LEADER: Phil Jagielka
