Everton centre-back Conor Coady has raved about teammate Idrissa Gueye, following the club’s 1-0 Premier League victory over West Ham United on Sunday.
Everton re-signed Gueye from Paris Saint-Germain on deadline day, for a fee thought to be worth £2m.
And Coady has expressed his delight at the 32-year-old’s performance against David Moyes’ side.
“Tell you what this fella is up there with the best… what a fella,” Coady posted on his Instagram story.
TIF Thoughts on Coady’s post
We believe that Coady’s post demonstrates good camaraderie and team spirit within the Everton camp at the moment, and this is a testament to the way Lampard has turned things around since his arrival at Goodison Park in January of this year.
And the former Wolves man’s praise of Gueye seems to be justified, with the midfielder earning himself a SofaScore rating of 7.3 for the fixture after playing 90% of accurate passes, winning four out of five ground duels, and winning both of his aerial duels throughout the game.
Therefore, we think that Lampard will be delighted that he has managed to add Gueye to his squad this season, with the midfielder likely to have a huge say in where Everton end up finishing this season.
