James Tarkowski believes that Seamus Coleman’s love for Everton is unmatched in football, reports the LiverpoolEcho. The centre back praised Coleman’s passion for the club and discussed the impact of his injury, saying, “I have never seen a player love a club as much as Seamus loves this club.” Despite being a relatively new addition to the team, Tarkowski expressed no regrets about joining Everton.
During Monday’s match against Leicester City, Coleman suffered ligament damage after a clumsy challenge from Boubakary Soumare. As the club captain, Coleman’s absence will be felt by the team, but Tarkowski and manager Sean Dyche are confident that his influence will continue. Despite the severity of his injury, Coleman sought to motivate his teammates from his stretcher, surprising even his own team.
Tarkowski described the incident as a testament to Coleman’s character, saying, “his love for this club is unrivalled.” Coleman’s leadership and communication skills will be missed in the dressing room, but Tarkowski believes that he will still play a crucial role in the team’s success.
As Everton fights for survival, the support of Seamus Coleman off the pitch and the passionate backing of the fans will be crucial. James Tarkowski also believes that the presence of manager Sean Dyche will strengthen Everton’s chances of avoiding relegation. Tarkowski speaks from experience as he witnessed Dyche’s ability to keep Burnley in the Premier League on a small budget.
While Tarkowski left Burnley for Everton last summer, he has no regrets and is fully focused on helping his current team. He stresses the importance of not becoming obsessed with other teams’ results and solely focusing on doing their own job. Despite Burnley’s successful return to the top flight, Tarkowski’s loyalty lies with Everton.
