first_imgDonegal soccer star Seamus Coleman has said he loves going home to Killybegs because nobody treats him any differently.The highly-paid Everton star may be able to eat at fancy restaurants and drive flash cars with his salary.But the modest 26 year old says he is treated just like one of the lads when he gets a chance to come home. “Where I come from, you don’t have the celebrity mindset. I grew up playing football with all the lads who are still back home and when I see them, they are my pals.“That is one of the reasons why I enjoy my time back home so much. The people in Killybegs wish me well and they are all delighted for me, but they don’t treat me any different and that’s the way I like it,” he said.Coleman, who played for Sligo Rovers before heading across the water to become a major star with Everton, says he hopes a lot of other young Irish lads can follow in his footsteps.But he warned that it is tough making it as a footballer and luck also plays a part. “The disappointments I suffered along the way was one of the reasons why I was so determined to make a success of this move to Everton when it happened.“I knew what I wanted the minute I got here. I had to take this chance and I was desperate to get into the first team. Well, I managed to do that and I stayed there,” he said. ‘I LOVE GOING HOME BECAUSE NOBODY TREATS ME LIKE A CELEBRITY’ – COLEMAN was last modified: March 2nd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalevertonKillybegsseamus colemanlast_img
