Koeman confirms new backroom additions

Newly-appointed Everton manager Ronald Koeman has named his brother, Erwin, as his assistant at Goodison Park, with Jan Kluitenberg joining as fitness coach.

The duo have followed Koeman to the Merseyside outfit from Southampton, forming a new-look coaching setup that will see David Unsworth and Duncan Ferguson continue in their current roles at the club.

The former Netherlands international is hoping to name a new goalkeeping coach in the coming days.

"It's always important to have a good technical staff," said Koeman at his first press conference as Everton boss.

"My brother will join us in the staff like he did at Southampton, and the physical coach Jan Kluitenberg will join us.

"We have Duncan Ferguson like an assistant in the technical staff and David Unsworth is the man between the first-team and the Under-21s.

"One position in the staff is still not done, which is the goalkeeper coach. In two days I hope we will have also occupied that position."
