Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen has insisted that Ronald Koeman "has the experience to turn it around" at Everton, amid growing calls for the manager to leave.
The Dutchman was backed heavily in the summer, spending in excess of £130m to bring in several new players in the hope of launching a potential top-four push.
However, Vermaelen believes that the accomplished manager has proved in the past that he is capable of turning things around at Goodison Park.
"He's shown at Southampton and Ajax that he's a great manager," he told Sky Sports News. "He has the experience to turn it around for sure."body check tags ::
