Marco Silva is a man in a unique situation. He has been able to train both Lucas Digne at Everton as well as Andrew Robertson during their time at Hull.
In a recent interview he had to talk about the best left-backs in the country and a comparison between Silva’s boy and the Reds defender were inevitable.
Lucas Digne has 31 league appearances this season, scoring 3 and assisting 4. On the other hand, Andfield’s Andrew has 32 appearances and contribution to 9 assists.
Here’s Marco Silva comparing
apples and oranges :
“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.”
“Robertson is a very good one also. He is a fantastic boy, a fantastic professional,”
“He is our rival but 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.”
