Everton fullback Digne: Why I left Barcelona

Everton fullback Lucas Digne says leaving Barcelona was the best decision for his creer.

Digne left Barca two years ago to move to Goodison Park.

He recalled to Sky Sports: "I needed to play, they (Marcos Silva and Marcel Brands) said I could enjoy life in England because the Premier League will be perfect for me, the high intensity and the challenge, and I thought the same thing.

"It's different for the time, but it's a football city. It feels like football is everything here.

"That's what I want, when you play for Everton, you know you have a lot of fans behind you."
