Digne Everton

Everton left-back Lucas Digne says he is proud to wear the captain armband for the Blues, and admitted that he had to make a big adjustment when he came to the Premier League.

The game in England has been likened to “playing in a tumble drier” and Digne said that he had to adjust quickly to getting very little time on the ball to make decisions.

Digne has impressed Evertonians since his signing from Barcelona in 2018, and says that he is enjoying his time with the Blues.

He said, “I had to quickly adapt to the intensity, the physical hits, to the need to quickly play forward and to repeat efforts at a high intensity. I’ve gone up a level. I’m asked to be very offensive, but that means a lot of one on ones in defence because games are very open. It’s the league that suits me best.

“I’m proud to wear the armband. I’ve only been here for a season and a half, so it’s a great sign of trust. I’d never worn it apart from with France’s youth levels. It would have been complicated at Paris Saint-Germain, Roma or Barcelona.

“I take pleasure every weekend. The most difficult is to stay at the same very high level. That’s what the great players manage to do. The key in all this is to take care of yourself, to be careful when recuperating, especially when you play two games in 48 hours on Boxing Day. That’s mostly to do with food and sleep.”
