Everton manager Ronald Koeman spoke out in support of Lennon at the time, saying he would “provide support” to Lennon in any way possible — additional quotes from the BBC:

“We try to give him all our support, so that he comes back as soon as possible.”

“Like with every individual player, we try to help him improve as a football player. If we find problems in mental [terms], we have enough people working in different functions in the club to help players with these kinds of problems.”
