Everton's Cahill: Emerton is the biggest catch in Australian football history

Tim Cahill believes Sydney FC's capture of Brett Emerton is the 'biggest in Australian football history'. The midfielder has left English Premier League club Blackburn Rovers after eight years to return to his home city and Everton star Cahill says it is a massive coup for the A-League and Australian football in general - even bigger than Melbourne Victory's signing of Harry Kewell

"For me, Brett Emerton is the heart and soul of the Australian team," Cahill said.

"To find out he has signed with Sydney FC - that would have to be the biggest catch in the history of Australian football.

"He's a player who goes about his business very quietly, he is the best player I have ever trained and worked with.

"I just think Sydney FC are very clever (getting Emerton in)."
