Steven Pienaar has described captaining Everton to be an “honour” and will remember the experience for years to come.

Roberto Martinez named a reserve/youth lineup in Everton’s final Europa League group game, naming Steven Pienaar as captain.

Pienaar told “It’s an honour to be captain. Unfortunately it didn’t go so well but it was a proud moment and a day I will remember for years to come.

“I found out today [Thursday] and I was quite surprised because we have got some other senior players. I think it was because I have been here for so long.”
