After three and a half seasons with the Toffees, Lucas Digne’s adventure at Everton seems to be at an end. Cold with his new coach Rafael Benitez, the French left side has not played since December 1. A choice difficult to understand for the one who had been voted best player of the club by his supporters, a year after his arrival.
This situation does not please the former Parisian, who made it clear to his coach. A subject raised by the latter at a press conference on Friday: “He was very clear […] What to say to a player who no longer wants to be there. I had a few conversations with him and he told me what he thought about it. “
He added : “We must consider what we want to do in the future: try to improve or just manage the egos (of the players)”, openly wondered Benitez, evoking the Digne case, which according to him is more interested in “His personal statistics” that by the classification of the club.
Worthy has no shortage of suitors
These statements from the Spanish coach come a little further to push the 28-year-old towards the exit. Among the best left-backs in the Premier League, Digne has no shortage of suitors. Chelsea, Newcastle, Inter Milan, all are attentive to the situation of the player trained in Lille, whose contract runs until 2025.
Eleven months before the World Cup (November 21 – December 18), the left side of the Blues has every interest in finding playing time if he wants to be part of the adventure in Qatar.
