Former Everton player Mikel Arteta has echoed Roberto Martinez’s comments and warned England not to put too much pressure on Everton youngster Ross Barkley at this summer’s World Cup.

“Ross has all the potential that you want from a young player and I think he’s got the right mentality as well. Hopefully he’s going to do well.

“The only worry is that he doesn’t get too much pressure on his shoulders because he’s still young. It’s his first tournament.

“I think it’s his first full season with the first team and having played many games, hopefully they don’t rush him too much, because he’s a great talent.”
