After 14 years at Everton, the 23-year-old went to Hearts, where he instantly won man-of-the-match in a 2-1 triumph over Celtic. The 2016/17 Everton Reserves and Academy Player of the Year has played every game of the Jam Tarts’ undefeated start to the season and thanks to his schooling at Everton for helping him adjust very fast.
“I believe Everton’s a club that’s quite similar to Hearts,” Baningime stated in a promotional video for Succession Season 3, which will be available to stream on NOW from the 18th of October, with a new episode published each week: “I think Everton’s a club that’s pretty similar to Hearts.”
“It was about hard work and having that character, so we think that’s probably why I’ve fit in so well here because character is something you acquire at Everton.” “Of course, you need skill, and they teach you how to develop it, but it’s more about that winning attitude that a lot of those boys have.”
To mark the release of Season 3 of the smash drama Succession, streaming provider NOW is bringing a taste of the Roy family’s dysfunctionality to the UK with a Succession-inspired football ‘takeover’ in Edinburgh.
In season two of the famous program, Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) buys Scottish football team Hearts to satisfy his billionaire father Logan (Brian Cox), only to learn that his wealthy father supports Edinburgh’s rivals Hibernian.
Baningime, a Succession fan, was thrilled this week when HBO and streaming provider NOW contacted Hearts to see if they might cooperate. NOW and Hearts were celebrating Roman Roy’s fake takeover of the club, with the name of the Roy family’s infamous business Waystar Royco appearing on the front of the club’s traditional maroon home shirts as well as branding throughout the Tynecastle stadium.
