Seamus Coleman has spoken about his burning desire since joining Everton.
The right-back was left on the bench in the match against Leicester City, which the Toffees lost by 0-1.
Everton right back and captain Seamus Coleman has said that it is his desire to be a part of the FA Cup winning squad with the Merseyside club, which, unfortunately, has not been able to achieve it. The experienced defensive ace was left on the bench against Leicester City, which the Toffees lost by 0-1 in their own backyard.
Speaking about his desire to win the FA Cup with Everton, the Irishman said, “I love my football. I love playing for Everton. I love training every day and coming through those gates at USM Finch Farm. I am very privileged to do what I do but I don’t want to be a player who ends up on 300, 400 appearances for this club and goes home and is remembered for that.”
He added, “My burning desire is to try and get an FA Cup at this club. My dream won’t change until the day I hang up my boots and please God it can happen.”
Speaking about his long absence from the side last season due to injury, the Everton skipper said, “[Everton] were on a good run when it happened and by the time I kicked another ball for Everton I’d seen a manager [Ronald Koeman] gone. Ireland lost in the World Cup play-offs to Denmark and you think, ‘Maybe I could have helped there.’
He concluded, “I was still being very well paid by this club so I owed it to them to get back. I felt bad for the manager and the team and was just desperate to help out in some way. It’s just the way I am, I think.”
