Lucas Digne Key Quotes

Lucas Digne’s faced media questioning in a press conference this afternoon – key quotes are below.

Why Everton?

“Everton took a lot of interest in me for over two months. When I spoke with Marcel [Brands] or the coach, they showed a lot of interest and it’s a very good project. I want to be part of it, for me, it’s perfect

On Silva

“It was a very good feeling when we spoke. When you speak with a person, you know if it’s a good person or not. For me, he’s a good person. He said to me I need to play more, I’m young. It’s perfect.”

On The Premier League

“Of course [I’m excited to play]. It’s the best league in the world. I want to play here. It’s a very good challenge and exciting challenge.

On Influencing His Move

“Schneiderlin and Gueye. I played with them in Lille or the International Team. They said to me “come, come, come. Don’t worry. You’ll be so happy here, you’ll see” so I said “Ok, I’ll come”

On Competition vs Baines

“I know him. Everyone knows him. We speak together. He’s a very good guy, he said to me welcome. The competition is very good for the team, it’s the best thing.

“Every position is a battle for every player. It’s a very good thing for the team”

On Positioning

“My position is left-back, if the team need me I can play centre back. I’m OK, but I’m not so tall but I can”

On Richarlison

“I saw a little bit of when he played for Watford and I said, this guy, he’s crazy. He’s plays very well, he’s so young and he has a lot of qualities. He’s quick, techical, I think we can do very good together”

On Jordan Pickford

“I just saw him but very quickly. I saw him during the World Cup. For me, he’s a very, very good goalkeeper. [Is it good to have Englands goalkeeper behind you for added security] Of course, yeah. When you have a very good goalkeeper like him it’s easy, you have a lot of confidence”.

On Expectations

“We want to be better than last year. I think we want to be part of the top six”

On Yerry Mina

“I hope to see him here but I don’t know. He chooses the best for his career and we’ll see. I’ve said to him to come [here] but we’ll see”

On his tattoo

“My tattoo is not about football. When I was 3 or 4, I went to my first day at school. My parents gave me a necklace with these words. Maybe it’s Liverpool fans so angry against me because I said two times no to Liverpool – I am blue!”
