Martinez hails Stones and Galloway similarities

Everton manager Roberto Martinez believes defenders John Stones and Brendan Galloway share the same “modern-day” qualities on the pitch.

21-year-old Stones, who has earned 4 caps for England so far, has established himself as a regular in the Toffees’s starting XI over the past 12 months, while 19-year-old England U21 international Galloway made his full debut in the Goodison Park side’s 2-1 English Premier League over West Ham United in May.

Martinez said: “They are different players, but the similarities are that they are both good defenders with a lot of athleticism and you need that in the modern game.

“As different as they are, [both] share that modern way of defending where you are not too worried about being left in one versus one situations.”
