Lucas Digne says that he left Barcelona to join Everton in order to play under Marco Silva and participate in the “project” at Goodison Park.
Digne signed shortly before the season and has seemingly inspired a new lease of life in Leighton Baines, and says that he is enjoying being part of the team at Everton.
He said that Marco Silva’s discussions over the summer had convinced him that Everton was the place to be.
He said, “The project and the coach. When I spoke with the coach he told me good things and I had a good feeling.
“The new project was very good and we will see what happens in the future.
“The coach has a very good mentality for the game, he wants to play with the ball and wants to play offensive football. I like to play like this way.
“The coach is new and you have a lot of new players. We have a good mix because we have experienced players who have played here for a few years and we can learn together and get the club higher up the table.
“It’s important for the full-back to be decisive in attack but it’s not the most important thing. You need to be a good defender before you attack and I am very happy to help the team.
“The most important thing is the team winning and when we win it’s perfect. I prefer to win and not get an assist than get an assist and we draw.”
