Everton left-back Leighton Baines has praised David Unsworth’s efforts as caretaker boss, stressing the win secured on Sunday was “the least” he has deserved.
Unsworth stepped up from the Under-23s two weeks ago to take temporary charge following the sacking of Ronald Koeman and oversaw three away defeats before Sunday’s result.
Baines, scorer of the decisive goal against the Hornets, told evertontv when asked about winning for Unsworth: “It makes it extra special.
“He has been top-drawer. I’ve loved the training sessions he’s put on and the way he has conducted himself. His talk before the game was special.
“We would like to have given him more, and achieved better results – but we have got him a win, which he deserved, at the least.”
