Everton defender Mason Holgate admits captaincy ambitions

Everton defender Mason Holgate admits he has captaincy ambitions.

However, Holgate has no intentions of usurping current club skipper Seamus Coleman just yet.

“Obviously that would be a massive, massive honour," the Toffees defender said when asked if he hopes to be named captain in the future during a Q&A with fans on the official club website.

“It would be great to do that but at the moment we've got Seamus [Coleman] who's a fantastic captain and has helped me massively ever since I've been at the club and done so many things for me. I think the whole changing room has got so much respect for him.

“So to learn off him and have him as a captain at the moment is great and I think the whole changing room can say that and vouch for that themselves."
