Everton midfielder Amadou Onana has enjoyed his first months under manager Frank Lampard.
Onana moved to Everton this summer from Lille.
He told evertonfc.com: “It’s been great so far. The past couple of weeks have just confirmed what my thoughts were beforehand – he’s a great manager and a nice human being as well.
“He’s full of ambition and he has a clear idea of how he wants to play football, which fits very well for me. There have been only positives. Of course, he was a midfielder as well and while we’re different players, I know I’m learning from the best. I’m just glad that I can work with him on a daily basis.”
Asked what he admired in Lampard as a player, Onana added: “His finishing… If I could finish as good as he could, I’d be happy with that! It’s something we talk about. He thinks that with my physical attributes I can score more and be more decisive.”
