Not only does Digne have fond memories of Villa Park. See Self-Aim above.
Lucas Digne has been one of Everton’s best players since joining Merseyside in 2018, and now he is Sold to AstonvilleAfter he ended up out in the cold with coach Rafael Benitez.
The French left-back was bought from Barcelona, and he has big clubs like Paris Saint-Germain and Roma on his resume, as well as up to 43 caps for the French national team.
Thus, he was considered a small bargain for Everton in his time, and he lived up to expectations by performing well on the field. But this season everything changed. The 28-year-old has not played for the Blues since the loss to Liverpool on December 1.
Benitez publicly announced and accused the Frenchman of being behind it They care more about their personal stats than they care about helping the club. When Ukrainian left-back Vitaly Mikolenko warmed up for Everton in early January, most people realized it was only a matter of time before Deni finished at the club.
Clubs like Newcastle and Chelsea were mentioned, but it was Aston Villa that pulled the longest straw. according to Watchman Birmingham club pays Digne around 270 million crowns. In addition, Anwar El Ghazi is expected to go the other way on loan.
– I didn’t think it would end like this, writes Digne in his book Instagram.
It’s only been a year since I signed a new contract, with my ambition to stay at the club for a long time. My dream was to help the club get back to where it belongs. Wearing the captain’s armband in some matches has always made me proud.
The new Aston Villa player has responded to Benitez’s accusations.
What happened and some of the things that have been said about me in the last month have made me very sad. But I will not engage in a war of words with anyone. Neither the club nor the fans deserve it, and to be honest I don’t feel like I deserve it either…
Sometimes it only takes one person on the outside to ruin a beautiful love affair, writes Digne.
