Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted he has been impressed by young talent Beni Baningime this season.
The 19-year old midfielder is enjoying a breakout debut season at Goodison Park, having long been held in high regard at the club.
The DR Congo-born Baningime has played in 12 games for the senior side this season, and he has seemingly left a good impression on teammate Schneiderlin.
The Frenchman claimed to be impressed by Baningime’s willingness to learn and improve among other things, hailing his attitude. Talking to the club’s official website, the former Southampton and Manchester United enforcer said;
He is learning and what I like with Beni is, every day, he asks things. He asks how he can improve and he listens to us.
Sometimes you have young players and you tell them something and it goes in one ear and out of the other. With Beni, I think he picks up on what we say and where he can improve.
He is a very good footballer. You can see that he’s not scared to tackle, he’s not scared to get on the ball and he likes to play forward.
After a while away from the match-day squad, Baningime has come on as a substitute in Everton’s previous three games and is expected to appear in the match-day squad again against Newcastle on Monday.
With only a few games to go until the season concludes, Schneiderlin hopes to see Beni receive even more action. He continued;
I like this type of player. Hopefully, he can have a few games from now until the end of the season and progress every year.
