Ben Godfrey: Proving people wrong has driven me at Everton


Everton Ben Godfrey

Everton defender Ben Godfrey has revealed that proving people wrong has driven him during his time as a footballer. Godfrey made the big-money move to Everton from Norwich and has established himself as a regular starter ever since. He has two senior appearances for the England national team at the age of 24. This season has been tough for the Merseyside club as they struggle to keep their Premier League status alive after a horrendous season.

“It started with hard work. I and my dad would spend hours practicing stuff at our local field nearby. I set out on that journey to prove those people wrong who had said no to me all those years ago,” Everton defender Ben Godfrey said. “I was fortunate enough to have good people around me. My family always believed in me and kept me going. They were taking me up and down the country, reminding me that I had what it took to overcome it and fulfill my dream of becoming a footballer. Resilience has played a massive part in my success.”

They were asking me about my experiences. There comes a time when you need to play. Make those mistakes, and learn from them. It will make you better,” he added. “I am my own biggest critic. I always want to be above the level I am at but your best years are only ahead of you if you keep working hard. If you get comfortable you can soon flatline your progression or even go backward. It is ingrained in me to stay hungry. Making my family proud is a massive motivator. I want to achieve things in football. It is the thrill of doing that. You are always chasing things. Improving my game will get me closer to those accolades.”
