November choice McCarthy is a real example

, 20 December, 0comments  |  Jump to most recent
James McCarthy's form for Everton was recognised this week when he was named as the club's Player of the Month for November and Roberto Martinez is delighted with the impact made by McCarthy since his summer move from Wigan.

"Yes, he has that. He's a real example," said Martinez when asked if McCarthy had the potential to take over as club captain.

"When you're talking about players who you want to set an example to the youngsters, he's clearly that.

"To be able to reach that landmark (250 appearances) at that age shows you that he's never changed, he just embraces challenges.

"He wants to get in positions where he can help the team and he's such a humble footballer and example of how a modern footballer should behave."
