Nikola Vlasic says there is no issue with his dearth of recent game time at Everton, and he has not spoken with David Unsworth about it.
Talking to 24 Sata, in his homeland, he said: “It was good at the beginning when I came, but the coach changed.
“I haven't talked to the new coach about why I'm not playing, it is about professionalism: you do not play, you do not play, you're on the bench and that's it, there is no story.”
Vlasic has featured nine times for Everton across all competitions this season. This includes playing four games in the Europa League, four in the Premier League and one League Cup fixture.
In his nine games he has scored one goal, in the Europa League fixture against Apollon Limassol, which helped the side to a 2-2 draw.
