Kennedy's Learning Curve
Scot on the Austria trip, his loan spells and ruling at FIFA14.
Last season, winger Matthew Kennedy got his first taste of senior English football when he headed away from Goodison Park for loan spells at Tranmere Rovers and MK Dons.
Now he's back and enjoying being part of Everton's pre-season training camp in Austria.
Only a week ago, manager Roberto Martinez named Kennedy among a list of young players he's keen to give a chance to prove themselves ready to help the first team this term.
Subsequently, Kennedy has been enjoying his opportunity to impress the manager in the sleepy town of Bad Erlach and in the video above you will hear him discuss:
- The testing nature of a first-team pre-season
- How he's relishing the chance to show what he can do
- How he feels he is improving from being around the senior pros
- Beating his teammates at FIFA - and who's the best/worst
- His loan spells last season and what he gained from them
- Why he feels he is growing as a person as well as a player
