Anichebe appreciates his Everton football education

Former Everton striker Victor Anichebe appreciates the football education he received at Finch Farm.

The striker departed the Blues for West Bromwich Albion in 2013 after breaking onto the first-team scene under David Moyes as a teenager.

“Now that I'm 30, thinking about 12 years ago, it does seem that long," he told evertonfc.com.

“I have really fond memories of being here. I was just telling the guys how great a club it is. When you've been to other places and travelled you do recall the good times you've had here.

“Wherever I go in the world people say, 'Victor Anichebe, Everton' and it just shows the strength and how big Everton is and some of the positive impacts we had together.

“I'm happy I was able to come through here."
