Everton defender John Stones thanks Roberto Martinez for the trust he’s given him at such a young age [Video]
John Stones has been one of the revelations of this Premier League season; indeed, in defensive terms, he’s been the revelation.
At just 19 years of age, Stones is a freakish outlier, as defenders are rarely given such a chance in the first team until they’ve at least reached 21/22.
Having arrived from Barnsley, Stones’ adaptation and development has been seamless, with the England U21 showing a commanding presence alongside Sylvain Dystin.
Stones himself recognizes the feat he’s achieving, and expresses his gratitude to his manager Roberto Martinez in the below Football Focus interview.
