Everton left-back Lucas Digne has revealed that he has no regrets over leaving Barcelona for Goodison Park earlier this summer.
The 25-year-old defender moved to Barca from PSG in the summer of 2016, but he was never really able to dislodge first-choice left back Jordi Alba at the Nou Camp.
“In Barcelona I played 46 games, so I do not think it was a problem. I never regret my choice, I spent two years in the biggest club in the world,” he told Le Parisien.
“It is outstanding. The Premier League is great, with incredible games every week. I’m having a lot of fun, it’s going at 2,000 miles per hour. There are a lot of spaces, huge duels. Physically, much more effort is needed.
“In my first game against Huddersfield, I had cramps in the 75th minute. It has been years since I had had one. As for the statistics, I saw that I would run much more here.”
Digne’s decision to move to Merseyside was justified recently by his recall to Didier Deschamps France squad.
