The Everton manager believes that his defender is the best player in the whole English Premier League competition.

There has been a lot of talks that Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson is the best left-back in the English Premier League.

But according to Everton manager Marco Silva, the best left-back in the EPL is none other than Lucas Digne.

“He is one of the best, I don’t have doubts about that. He is proving that” Silva said to Football 365.

“I do not have all the names in my mind at the moment but Lucas has stayed there with the best.”

“If he is the best one, always, I will push for my players but Lucas is there in the top list of the best left-backs,” he added.

“Robertson is a very good one also. He is a fantastic boy, a fantastic professional,” he added.

“He is our rival and he deserves everything he is achieving in his career but Lucas is Lucas, and Lucas, for me, is the best one because he is our player and playing in our blue shirt.”

“We are really happy with him, he is enjoying his football and our fans love him and he has been everything we expected when we signed a player such as him,” Silva concluded.

Frenchman Digne joined Everton in 2018 after two seasons trying to be featured in the Spanish La Liga club Barcelona.
