Tour Tales: Sylvain Distin

by Hamish Dufton @efchamishdufton

After Victor Anichebe revealed all in the hotseat recently, Sylvain Distin has been the latest Blues player to discuss his favourite and worst pre-season memories in evertontv’s new feature Tour Tales.

While the Frenchman has been on a number of pre-season tours during his long career there has been one common denominator for every single one.

 “It doesn’t matter where you are – Africa, Australia, wherever – all you do is run!” he laughs.

“It’s bed, eat, run, bed, eat, run. I can’t even remember where I went on my first. All I remember is running!”

To find out where Distin thought his best tour was, and who rivals himself as Everton’s best trainer, watch the video above.*

evertontv will be speaking to more first-team players about their Tour Tales as the summer rolls on.
