New manager Ronald Koeman during the press conference
The Dutchman was confirmed as the new Everton manager earlier this month after completing a move from Southampton.
He was brought in as replacement for Roberto Martinez, who was sacked at the end of last season following a second successive 11th placed finish in the Premier League.

It is hoped that Koeman can turn that around and enjoy similar success to that he had during his two years in charge of Southampton.
And Nevin believes that could be the case as the Blues job is one of the best jobs to get at this moment in time.
"Everton did the right thing and to get Koeman was a coup. Everton is one of the best jobs to get at the moment,” he told the Daily Star.
"Expectations have been lowered over the last couple of years, they've now got this huge new investment and plenty of good young players. It's a brilliant situation for Koeman.”

It now remains to be seen whether Koeman will be a success at Everton next season and beyond.
Much will rest on the work he can do in the transfer window, with this summer in particularly looking likely to be a busy one.
He has reportedly been strongly backed by shareholder Farhad Moshiri, who is determined to make a marquee signing, and who Koeman can add will play a big part on his plans for the Toffees.
