Frenchman presented at Villa Park The most wanted left back on the football market this winter, Lucas Digne has officially become the new player of Aston Villa. The team from Villa Park took the victory in the competition with serious "players" such as Chelsea, West Ham and Newcastle and paid 30,000,000 euros in compensation to the Caramels.
Steven Gerrard thus provided another significant reinforcement for his team in a short period of time, after he hired Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool. The French left-back was quite relieved after his official departure from Goodison Park, as he has reportedly had a rather bad relationship with Rafa Benitez lately.
"Everything has to come to an end, I just didn't expect it to end like this. What happened and some things that were said about me made me very sad, but I won't go to war with anyone." "The club doesn't deserve it, the fans they don't deserve - and to be honest, I don't feel like I deserve it.Thanks to all the wonderful, proud and passionate Everton fans." "It was an honor and pleasure to play for you because the club does not belong to the player or manager but to the fans .Sometimes only one person on the side to destroy the beautiful connection ", said Lucas Digne, among other things, on his Instagram profile.
Lucas Digne career
During his career, Lucas Digne played for Paris Saint-Germain, Roma and Barcelona, won titles in France and Spain, and is part of the current generation of the French national team. "When Lucas Digne became available, we took the opportunity to bring him to the club.
Signing a player of his pedigree and quality in the January window is a great addition to our team. His arrival is a pleasure for me and everyone connected to Aston Villa," said Steven Gerrard. . Confirmation of Lucas Dign's quality, or better to say longevity, lies in the fact that this is the fourth time that a club has paid compensation for him.
Back in 2013, Paris Saint-Germain brought him from Lille as a great hope for compensation of 15,000,000 euros, and three years later, Barcelona bought him for 16,500,000. He arrived at Everton in the summer of 2018 for 20,200,000, and Aston Villa significantly surpassed that.
Aston Villa are seriously stepping up, and seem to have big ambitions for the rest of the season Lucas Digne could be very helpful to Aston Villa given his experience and knowledge.
