Everton fullback Lucas Digne has taken aim at former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde.

Digne failed to see eye-to-eye with Valverde while at Barca.

"I didn't have any connection," he said. "He was not a good communicator and it's noticeable. He even struggled to speak with Messi. He was very reserved and it surprised me at the start."

On Luis Enrique, Digne was more positive: "We only did five of 10 minutes of tactics, but it was exactly what happened at the weekend.

"When you have coaches like that, it's much easier to be a player."
