Former Everton midfielder Lee Carsley believes that Seamus Coleman needs a winger such as Aaron Lennon to play in front of him.
Indeed, Coleman’s has experienced a drop in form last season and was often the subjects of critics. In fairness, it was the whole Everton team that underperformed last season, and Coleman was one of those players that fail to replicate their usual form.
People were used to Coleman making those important runs on the wings, but these performances were very rare. The player also suffered numerous injuries throughout the season and this also affected his performance negatively.
However, Lee Carsley believes that the player will find his form back next season, and he will be an important player for the team. He said that the player has already shown signs that he is recovering at the Euros and that he will be an influential player next season for Everton.
Lee Carsley believes that having a player such as Aaron Lennon in the team will definitely help improve Seamus Coleman performance. The former Everton manager said that Aaron Lennon is an old-fashioned winger that likes to go up and down the wings and will provide Coleman with additional cover.
For Lee Carsley, Coleman is a good player when attacking, but he does have some flaws when it comes to defending. He believes Aaron Lennon can complement Seamus Coleman and help him in the defending part of the game. It is vital for Everton to keep Lennon fit if they want to get the best from Seamus Coleman.
Lee Carsley believes that Everton can have an interesting season if they prepare themselves well. He believes that they have a good squad and that with the influx of capital there will probably be more signings before the start of the season.
