Everton’s ‘good signing’ praised by Ronald Koeman: ‘He changed the game’

first_imgOn-loan striker Enner Valencia may yet have a significant part to play in the remainder of Everton’s season after choosing the new year to provide a reminder of his qualities.The home game with Southampton appeared to be drifting towards a dreary goalless draw until the Ecuador international’s introduction just past the hour.He scored the opening goal, won a penalty for the second and was generally bright throughout in the 3-0 win with all the goals coming in the final 17 minutes.Valencia arrived on loan from West Ham on the final day of the summer transfer window but it was the reopening of it in January – with Ronald Koeman looking to considerably strengthen his squad over the next month – which sparked his best performance and a first goal after making just 12 appearances, most as a substitute.“He can play a lot of different attacking positions and give the manager a lot of possibilities to change systems,” said Koeman.“It is too early to make a final decision about his future but it was a good signing for us.“We waited for an hour and I think at that stage we needed something different up front.“He was one of the players who changed the game, scored the first goal and created difficulties for Southampton.”Koeman had preferred 19-year-old Dominic Calvert-Lewin to support Romelu Lukaku, scorer of Everton’s third after the Belgium international allowed Leighton Baines to score the second from the penalty spot, in attack.The experiment lasted just 12 minutes before the teenager’s first start for the club was cut short by injury which later saw him leave Goodison Park on crutches with his left ankle in a protective boot.“We had to make a decision whether to bring in the boy and make Enner wait,” added Koeman.“I wasn’t happy with the support we gave to Rom from the midfield in the last few weeks so that was the reason we started Dominic behind Romelu.“We need to wait until tomorrow (for the injury assessment). We are disappointed but he is young and he will come back.” 1 Enner Valencia: The Ecuador international scored the opening goal and won a penalty last_img read more

PM says hell work with provinces on Trans Mountain expansion

first_imgSURREY, B.C. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’ll work with British Columbia and Alberta to move ahead with his government’s agenda of building the economy while protecting the environment.Trudeau was in Surrey today and was asked about the possibility that B.C. could wind up with a government that opposes the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.The final count from the recent provincial election, including absentee ballots, will be completed next week and the anti-pipeline Greens are poised to hold the balance of power if a minority government is confirmed.Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has said that no province has the power to stop the expansion of the pipeline, which runs from the Edmonton area to Burnaby.Trudeau did not directly answer a question about whether her statement was true, but he says he has a very positive relationship with the provinces and will work with them to ensure they are creating good jobs while moving toward a lower-carbon economy.The federal government approved the expansion late last year.last_img read more
