Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti says that his signing of Ben Godfrey to play at centre-back for the Toffees was a smart move.
The ex-Norwich arrival cost £20million and has played in several defensive roles but centre-back is his preferred position.
Ancelotti said this week, “I think the signing was fantastic. He is young and can be the future of this club. I think he has a lot of qualities. It is difficult to name a single thing. He has a lot of energy, his physicality is really top for a defender. He is fast, aggressive in one against one and is good with the head.”
Praise indeed from one of the world’s most respected coaches.
