Cahill convinced Anichebe will win back Everton fans

Everton star Tim Cahill is convinced Victor Anichebe can win over Toffees fans.

Everton star Tim Cahill is convinced Victor Anichebe can win over Toffees fans.

David Moyes tied Anichebe to a new four-and-a-half year contract in January, and fans’ favourite Cahill insists it is not easy dealing with the pressure of Premier League football at such a young age.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “Victor has had a few injuries but his work ethic and what he did on Saturday showed what the lad is all about. It’s hard, people need to understand he’s still a young boy.

“There is a lot of expectation when you break into a first team from such a young age. When you lose the ball and the crowd get on top of you there’s pressure.

“I got it all the time but luckily enough I can deal with it. Other people react differently, but on Saturday his reaction was first class.

“This is a turning point for the crowd and Victor. Hopefully he can now fulfil his potential because he’s got a lot of talent.”
