Everton management delighted with Baines coaching impact
Everton management are delighted with the input this season of Leighton Baines.
Baines has been working with the Everton first-team in an analysis capacity.
Baines retired after 13 years and 420 appearances for Everton at the end of the last season but was immediately brought back as a professional development coach, a newly-created position that envelops the under-18s, under-23s, and young first-teamers.
Everton academy director David Unsworth told evertonfc.com: “I’ve been very impressed with Leighton.

“He’s thrown himself in at the deep end.”
The former Everton defender continued: “He’s mentoring, delivering one-to-one sessions, he’s in the classroom with the players. He’s also working on the analysis side with the first team, ourselves in the Under-23s and the Under-18s. He’s everywhere!
“I’ve been really impressed with the dedication he’s shown, the hours he’s put in and the way he’s delivered to the players.
“He’s been a great benefit to us all and he’s helping our young players a lot.”
