Lucas Digne says Steven Gerrard was main reason for moving to Aston Villa

Aston Villa newcomer Lucas Digne said the main reason for moving from Everton to Birmingham was the English head coach of Aston Villa Steven Gerrard.

“It was the main factor. I came here for the manager,” Digne told Villa TV.

“I had a very good meeting with him and we spoke a couple of times during this month. I feel his desire to win, to show his football as a manager – the attacking football, the possession. I feel it’s what I want and what I want to show to the fans.”

According to unofficial data, Aston Villa paid 25 million pounds for the 28-year-old football player.
