Osman: Besic can be a hero

Veteran Everton midfielder Leon Osman has backed new signing Muhamed Besic to be a success in the Premier League.

The Bosnia international made his first appearance in a Toffees shirt in Osman’s testimonial against FC Porto on Sunday, a game which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Besic signed a five-year deal with the club last week and Osman believes he can go on to become an Everton hero.

“He hasn’t tackled that aggressively in training, thankfully,” the 33-year-old told reporters after the game.

“But the touches and quality he has shown in training.

“It was a really good debut for the lad and if he plays like that every week then he will be a crowd favourite for many years.”
