Everton captain Seamus Coleman has signed a one-year contract extension keeping him at the club until 2023. Coleman was made the Everton captain in 2019, 10 years after he joined the club from Sligo Rovers in 2009. The Republic of Ireland international has made more than 350 appearances for the club and will remain a key figure under new manager Rafa Benitez this season. Coleman made 25 appearances under former manager Carlo Ancelotti last season.
“It’s a massive honor to extend my time here,” Seamus Coleman said after signing a contract extension with Everton. ”It was about getting my head down and to keep working hard as I’ve always done, and the club decided to reward me with that. It’s something I’m very happy with. It was about getting my head down and to keep working hard as I’ve always done, and the club decided to reward me with that. It’s something I’m very happy with.”
“I keep saying it and make no apologies for it, winning is what we’re here to do,” he added. “The whole football club’s vision is to break that barrier (to win silverware again). My job in the process is to be sure we are doing all the right things behind the scenes, on the training pitch, the best way possible.”
Coleman could be in line for his 300th Premier League appearance for their season opener against Southampton. Everton will be looking to end their trophy drought this season after winning their last trophy in 1995.
