Celta de Vigo striker John Guidetti has revealed to The Times that he enjoyed working with Everton manager Ronald Koeman at Feyenoord.
The Sweden international played for Dutch club Feyenoord on loan from Premier League giants Manchester City during the 2011-12 season.
The 25-year-old striker has revealed that he enjoyed playing under Koeman, who was appointed the Everton manager in the summer of 2016.
“My time there was great but I was frustrated,” Guidetti told The Times about his time at City. “I have unfinished business in England because I never started my business in England.”
“Ronald Koeman was amazing, a great trainer,” added the Swede. “He doesn’t care about names, you’ve seen that with this new midfielder at Everton, Tom Davies; if you’re ready he puts you in. I did really good in Holland.”
Guidetti failed to pull up any trees during his time at City, but he seems to have revived his career at Celta de Vigo.
The striker has scored four goals and provided two assists in 11 Europa League appearances for the Galician outfit this campaign, according to WhoScored.
Guidetti’s goals has been important in Celta reaching the semi-finals of the Europa League where they will take on Premier League giants Manchester United.
The Sweden international striker has a lot of potential, and perhaps playing under Koeman at Everton would help him fulfil it.
The former Celtic loanee is not going to be an automatic starter at Everton even if Romelu Lukaku leaves in the summer transfer window, but he could be a decent back-up option.
