Ronald Koeman confirmed as Everton boss on a three-year deal worth £6m per season.

A new era at Goodison Park can begin after Ronald Koeman was finally confirmed as Everton's manager.
The Dutchman had enjoyed two excellent seasons with Southampton and would have had a European campaign on his agenda in the forthcoming campaign but he found it impossible to turn down the overtures of Everton's major investor Farhad Moshiri.
Koeman has signed a three-year contract, worth £6million per season, and he will be given the biggest transfer kitty in Everton's history to revamp a squad that failed to fulfil its potential under Roberto Martinez.

KOEMAN'S MANAGERIAL STATS 

Valencia (2007-08): P35 W12 D9 L14
Feyenoord (2011-14): P108 W62 D21 L25
Southampton (2014-16): P91 W44 D17 L30 

Martinez was sacked on May 12 after results had spiralled and Koeman quickly became the prime target for Moshiri, who acquired a 49.9 per cent controlling stake in Everton on February 27 and has been determined to make a statement. 
Koeman, speaking to Everton's website, said: 'I am very excited to be Everton manager. I believe in the club, in the team, in the fans and in our ability to achieve things in the future.
'Everton is a club with a great history and real ambition and it is a proud feeling for me to be part of what we want to go and do, together with the chairman and Farhad Moshiri.
'I am looking forward to meeting everyone at the club and to preparing for a big season in the Premier League.'
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright added: 'We are really pleased to have secured the man who was our No 1 target from the moment we set out to appoint a new manager.
'Ronald has such a strong track record in the game, instantly commanding respect for what he achieved as a player and for his qualities and accomplishments as a manager.
'The hopes and aspirations that we all have as Evertonians are with him, as is our total support at board, shareholder and fan level.'
