Everton have today annouced the return of David Unsworth as the Club’s Under-21s assistant manager.
An FA cup winner in 1995, Unsworth will assist Alan Stubbs in helping the Club’s young players break into Roberto Martinez’s first team.
Unsworth made over 300 appearances for the Toffees, after coming through the ranks of the youth system.
He told evertontv: “It means the world to me this Club. I came through the ranks at Everton and I lost count of how many seasons I spent here.
“Every time you go back to Goodison you’re made to feel very welcome. You’re never forgotten as a player here and there’s not many clubs you can say that about.
“So it’s great to be back but I’m here to do a job, I’m here to work and I’m here to pass on anything I can to these young players.
“I’ll be working my socks off for Alan Stubbs and the Under-21s – and the Academy as and when I’m needed – and that’s a nice feeling.
“It’s definitely a case of being back home and it’s an absolute honour to be asked.
“It feels like the first day back at school again and I’ve seen plenty of familiar faces already. To be honest, it feels like I’ve never been away.”
