Ronald Koeman hails African as the best

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has hailed African star Yannick Bolasie as the best winger in the premier league as he looks forward to giving him his debut this weekend.

The DR Congo winger joined the Toffees for £25m earlier this week having played for Crystal Palace on the opening week of the premier league.
Koeman is a huge fan of the 23-year-old who goes straight into the Everon squad for the premier league game this weekend while fellow new signing Ashley Williams who joined from Swansea City could also feature after his extended break following success with Wales at the Euro 2016.
“Yannick will be part of the squad. Whether he starts or is on the bench, we will decide. Yannick is fast, strong, gives the team energy. He is one of the best wingers in the league,” Koeman told reporters.
“Ashley is close to being part of the team. Maybe he will be in the squad for Saturday.”
The player recently told the club’s website at his unveiling: “I’m looking forward to putting on the Everton shirt,” Bolasie told evertontv. “This is a big club and I know all about it from having played against them over the years.
“For me, it was a no-brainer to come here. But now that I’ve come to Everton, the job is not done. I’ve got to work hard and feel my way in. I’m ready and up for the challenge.”
Everton are expected to welcome back Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku for this weekend’s match against West Bromwich Albion but defender Seamus Coleman is out until after the international break.
