Every player who engages his long-term future for Everton should be aiming for a major trophy and Michael Keane is no different after signing a new five-year contract with the Blues.
The center-back joined Burnley in 2017, but after playing under four different managers in just three seasons at Goodison Park – plus acting bosses David Unsworth and Duncan Ferguson – he hopes to land silverware under Carlo Ancelotti.
“The president has been amazing to me. He has always expressed his confidence in me, so I want to say thank you to him, the staff, my teammates and the fans.
“As a team we have to look to achieve something and push for a trophy.
“It’s not easy but it’s something we have to aim for.
“The club have invested in the team and it is time for us to start producing results on the pitch.
“We want to finish higher in the table than last year and enter Europe.
“And if we can win a cup that would be great.
“It’s always helpful when you feel like you have a good relationship with your managers and can talk to them about anything, whether it’s football or whatever.
“I feel like I can approach anyone I’m playing for per minute.
“It’s a help.
“But the most important thing is football and the way they like to play.
“My style suits both managers and that’s probably why you’re seeing the best of me right now.”
