'We'll Give Aaron All The Support He Needs'


Manager Ronald Koeman says the Everton family will give Aaron Lennon all the support he needs to overcome a stress-related illness.

The football world has united in support of the 30-year-old after the Club confirmed on Tuesday he was receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness.

And manager Koeman revealed everyone at the Club is fully behind the winger, insisting ‘life and health is more important than football’.

Speaking at his weekly press conference, the Everton boss said: "As you know, Aaron has a stress-related illness and it's a private situation what happened.

“We are in contact with his family, and it will be between us, the player and his family.

“We will support Aaron and help him to come back and if that takes time, then it takes time.

“But the most important thing right now is he will be like he was because life and health is more important than football.”
