Everton are fighting for a top finish in the English Premier League this season and defender Joleon Lescott is one of the primary reasons why David Moyes’ side are performing so well. Lescott was even called up by England national coach Fabio Capello for his first match in charge which ended in a 2-1 win over Switzerland on Wesdnesday but had to watch it from the bench.
Not that Lescott grudges that. Everton FC quotes him as saying:
He is obviously well versed in the art of defending and he worked with some terrific defenders, past and present.I think he wants us to be tighter at the back from now. I’m grateful for any advice he may give me. If I can take it back to Everton with me and it helps me to become a better player and the team to improve, I will be thrilled.
Noble words, Lescott. Do not worry, if you keep on performing the way that you have, you would again feature in the England set-up.
