Lucas Digne: “It is an honour to captain Everton.”

Speaking to Canal Plus after Everton’s 2-0 victory over West Ham United, left-back Lucas Digne discussed being made captain for this lunchtime’s game.

“Our captain was suspended and I knew that Gylfi (Sigurdsson) would not be starting, so I knew that I was going to be captain. The coach spoke to me about it, I took this on with enormous pleasure and it is an honour to captain this team. They are great guys, this is a big club and so it is a big responsibility, the coach believes in me enormously and I can only be happy.”
