Everton have been keeping their Instagram account ticking over as the Blues prepare to return to Premier League action this month.
In a recent upload, they have featured Mason Holgate, who has been making waves this season. Not only has he got fans singing his praises on Twitter, but Carlo Ancelotti must be pleased with his progress after offering him a new five-year deal earlier this year.
Loads of Everton fans have flocked to the club’s Instagram post and are calling for the 23-year-old to be made captain in the future. One supporter recently claimed he ‘deserves the armband’. This is seemingly a very popular opinion as it isn’t the first time supporters have seen some captain material in him.
Will Mason Holgate be the future Everton captain?
After Holgate penned his future with the Merseyside outfit, Evertonians were confident he would be made captain in the near future.
He has certainly proved he can command the back four, averaging more tackles per game (1.7) than fellow centre-backs Michael Keane (1.1) and Yerry Mina (1.5). Holgate has also contributed three assists to Everton’s tally this season (via WhoScored).
The Toffees fans are in tune with each other as they urge for the club to make the defender club captain in the future. As Everton wait for the Premier League to resume, Holgate will be given more chances to prove himself against the top teams.
