'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Change not difficult to Distin

Sylvain Distin insists that the charge of guard at Everton has not been difficult for him to adjust too.

With David Moyes walking out of the door at Goodison Park to walk in as manager of Manchester United at Old Trafford, Everton have seen a change at the top for the first time in eleven years.

Roberto Martinez is the man to take Everton into a new era after he left FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic for the job as David Moyes's replacements.

From the hard grafting Scottish personality, to a more laid back Spanish gaffer the changes at Everton appear on the surface to be quite different. But for Distin, nothing much has changed.

'If the manager asks me to play long, I play long. If he asks me to play short, I play short. If I have to run around and tackle, I tackle! I don't think, as a defender, there is a lot of difference, Distin told Sky Sports.

He continued: '(Martinez) just encourages us to play a little bit more football, and start from the back. No matter the manager, defending is always the same.

'It's a different regime, a different style of training and a different way of speaking to the players. You just have to adapt and you get used to it quite quickly, it's not difficult.'
