Baningime hails “role model” Coleman

Baningime EvertonEverton teenager Beni Baningime says that Seamus Coleman is a role model, and says that although he appears aggressive on the pitch, he is humble and “the nicest guy I’ve met.”

The 19 year old midfielder made 8 appearances for the Blues last season and says that he doesn’t want to let anything go to his head.

“Every single one of them has been great,” he told the club website.

“I speak to Seamus a lot. He tells me, ‘You probably need to start believing in yourself more’. He said he was the same [earlier in his career] but that you need to work through that and you will grow as a person and have more confidence. Then that will help your game a lot.

“He is a role model. You look at how well he has done as a footballer.

“On the pitch, he will shout at you and that is what you need. But off the pitch you are thinking, ‘Wow, this is the nicest guy I’ve ever met’. And they are all like that. Every single one of them – they are great players.

“There are Premier League and Champions League winners there – and you are thinking, ‘How are they so humble?’.

“But that is why they are so good. And I think my character fits well with them.

“I come in and work hard. I am humble. I do not let things get into my head, because when that happens you fall off.”
