Everton fans tip Jonjoe Kenny for big things during his time with the club

Everton posted a short interview with young defender Jonjoe Kenny on the club’s official Twitter account on Thursday after he made his first start for the club in the 3-0 win against Sunderland in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, and Toffees fans are tipping him for big things.

With Seamus Coleman still on the sidelines as he recovers from the double leg break he suffered while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland in March, Kenny may have expected to be involved in the early stages of this season having appeared as a substitute against Swansea in the Premier League in May.

However, the addition of Cuco Martina and Mason Holgate’s ability to play in the position kept the 20-year-old on the periphery of the squad – until the success against the Mackems where he also kept a clean sheet.

Everton supporters were quick to have their say on the young full-back via social media, and while some have tipped him as a “future captain” of the Merseyside outfit, others say he ‘must start every game until Coleman is back’.
