Leandro: It’s a big dream to come to a large club like Everton
New Everton striker Leandro Rodriguez has declared that it is a dream move to come to a huge club like Everton and is confident that he can impress supporters.
Leandro knows that he is a bit of an unknown quantity over here so wanted to explain his abilities and said that he is a technical player who likes to work well with his team mates.
“I watched players like Romelu Lukaku in Uruguay, so I am very happy to be able to play with players like that,” said the South American. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that I’ll enjoy playing with these players – I’m somebody that likes to get involved with my teammates.
“It’s a big dream to come to a large club like Everton. It’s also a very big responsibility but I am very confident in my abilities.
“I think the coach and I enjoy the same type of football and I’m going to give my best efforts for the Club. Also, the people in the Club will give me confidence to play.”
Rodriguez also offered an insight into what the Goodison faithful can expect from him and pointed to one of his country’s striking legends and a former Premier League winner as a source of inspiration.
“I’ve always looked towards big players in Uruguay like Diego Forlan,” added Leandro. “The fans won’t know much about me but I consider myself to be quite a technical player.
“I’m somebody who can work well with other players and I look forward to being able to show myself and my game to the Everton supporters.”
