Mentality change crucial, says Mirallas

Kevin Mirallas has said a change in his mentality is the reason for his improved performances in recent weeks, thoughts echoed by Everton manager Roberto Martinez, Sky Sports has reported.

Mirallas scored the winning goal for Everton on Saturday, converting a 30-yard free-kick to give the Toffees a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.


Leandro Bacuna had given Villa the lead in the first-half but Steven Naismith equalised after the break before Mirallas’ late intervention.


“My mentality changed,” Mirallas said when asked about his upturn in form.


“I can play strong and well in every game now. Before it was one game well, two games not so good. Now I can play well consistently in five games.


“I spoke with the manager and I spoke with my father. Dad told me that I had good quality but sometimes my mentality wasn't good and that had to change.


“I spoke to some of the other players too. But it was my father Jose who made the difference for me. He came here to see me in December and helped me.”


Martinez agreed, commending Mirallas for embracing a more senior role around Goodison Park.


“Earlier in the season he was a player helping the team but now he is desperate to set standards week in, week out.


“And that, for a striker or attacking player, is very rare and that is why I had no problems of playing him in a different position and moving him around because I think he has that maturity now.”
