Jordan Pickford doesn't want to be remembered for being relegated with Everton

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford says that the club are looking to ‘build for the coming years’ with what they’re doing to get out of their relegation battle.

The Toffees currently sit two points above the relegation zone with three games left to play this season, and a win over Brentford on Sunday [May 15] could secure their safety if results go their way.

But Pickford, speaking to Sky Sports, believes the whole battle could work out positively if they end up surviving as the club could use it all to start building for the future to become a more successful team.

“Yeah of course, it’s a big job and it’s a big role for us all to be playing a part of,” he said.

“Picking these next results up is going to be crucial. We don’t want to be apart of those Everton teams that have been relegated, we want to be part of the Everton teams that are successful.

“This year hasn’t been great but when we come out of this we’ve got three games with Brentford come Sunday, so it’s all focus on Brentford, not about the game after.

“So when we come out of it by working hard, not lacking commitment and winning games, it’s something to look back on and build on for the next coming years.”

Silver lining

Everton’s season has been horrendous for anyone associated with the club, but as they approach the silver lining of safety for another season there are some positives to take.

Frank Lampard has found a unity within the dressing room and the crowd have really pushed the team over the line to help them reach their end goal.

It’s brought the community and the club closer than ever before and there is renewed belief that they can really start to build something good at the club after overcoming this nightmare.

At one point it really looked like there was no way out and they were certainly going down, so the fact they’re in the position they’re in now is a huge boost in itself.

Pickford is a big reason that they are where they are and hopefully staying up means he will stay for the long run now and can be part of the next successful Blues side.
