Seamus Coleman insists he will not allow his fame, success and ability go to his head after being named Everton’s young player of the season.
Coleman has gone from a part-time player at Sligo Rovers to a fully established and promising Premier League player and Ireland international in the space of 18 months.
The 22-year-old told the Liverpool Echo that he will not let himself get carried away in the footballers’ lifestyle: “You can see how you get carried away with the lifestyle and the fast cars and that kind of thing but that’s not for me. I just try and get my head down and try to remain the lad who moved over originally two years ago. I try and keep that sort of mentality. I’m still a bit of a home bird. I enjoy going home to the family and spending time with my girlfriend. I don’t do the Ferraris, definitely not.”
