Danjuma chose Everton despite Milan links due to ‘history of the club’ and the coach

By Euan Burns -

New Everton winger Arnaut Danjuma has explained his reasoning for choosing the Premier League side over a move to AC Milan or any other interested party.

Speaking to Everton’s official media (via Pianeta Milan), the Dutchman said that the history of Everton as a football club and the quality of Sean Dyche as a coach were the major factors when choosing to sign.

“It’s amazing to join Everton and I’m really happy to be here. It’s been a long time coming to join such a massive club as Everton and it makes me proud,” he said.

“I had interest from other clubs but there was a pull towards Everton because of the fans, the manager and the history of the Club and it’s second time lucky for me.”

Milan had been very close to securing the signing of Danjuma on a loan deal from Villarreal, but Everton then managed to strike an agreement with both the player and Villarreal which led to the move accelerating rapidly.

He has already been officially unveiled by Everton, but Milan are now close to signing Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal instead in a bid to bolster the options on the wings.

Milan have already signed Christian Pulisic and should Chukwueze arrive, Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers could both be sold.

    1. I’m shocked at the history he is talking about, let’s just be honest he wants playing time and he knows that there is no way he would be granted room because of his experience at Tottenham…..omo e for chop bench tire no jokes because is it Leao or Giroud he wants to bench or chubby lolzzzzz….he warned himself seriously!!!

  1. I have never heard of a player being so sarcastic 🤣🤣 Even the club, Everton knows it’s fake affection from him…. They would never think of him picking them over Milan if it has to do with history, Prestige and the weight of Ac Milan… U needn’t fake it Danjuma. Financially, maybe u’ll get paid more but not huge weight of my Milan🤣 I’m amused

    1. I wonder what he would have said about Tottenham in the past… Maybe he would have called them the best club in the world🤣🤣 He reminds of “Chicken head” CASSANO!!🤣🤣 CASSANO was so terrible!🤣

  2. He has to blow smoke up the ass of his new employers at the press conference, that’s how it works. Bottom line is that he’s more familiar with the EPL (and living in England), and Everton probably offered higher wages.

    1. And when they go down this year he can then play in the awesome Championship, with Milan he could have played in the Champion’s League, maybe he doesn’t know the difference. No worries though as I am glad Milan didn’t waste resources on him.

  3. History of being relegation threatened 🤣🤣. I know Everton fans are great but the history bit must be a joke or maybe a troll

  4. Players need to be sensible, going to Milan at this point in his career would have been better,UCL matches, fighting for the league, but instead, he will be in a relegation dog fight.

  5. After this statement i am flad he didnt come. Good luck in premiership next year, thats the only hostory in making with you being part of it

  6. Bruh literally said history and coach💀🤣 a team famous for being Liverpools punching bag, and a coach famous for caveman football in the relegation zone. Just say you wanted the money buddy, we all know thats what it was😂
