Garner to learn from Lampard
Playing for Frank Lampard was a major factor in James Garner’s decision to join Everton from Manchester United.
The young midfielder has revealed in his first interview at Goodison Park that he hopes to learn from the Premier League, who are currently in charge of the Toffees.
And the confident 21-year-old believes he can show himself to be an influential figure with his new club.
Garner told EvertonTV: “I can’t wait to get started. The manager has a real plan for the club and for me. Working with him every day is very important to me.
“He and his staff can take me and the team to the next level. I hope so.
“I captained every team up to the first team at Manchester United and England. That’s a quality I definitely have.
“I’m still young and there are a lot of leaders in the Everton team now but that was something I’ve always had and I’m not afraid to speak my mind and lead by example.
“The club has really high-quality players and I’m looking forward to learning.”
Garner is understood to have cost Everton £15m with United including a 20% sales fee in the deal.
