Everton's Cahill: I'd never defect to Liverpool

Everton midfielder Tim Cahill says he would never leave Everton to play for rivals Liverpool. The Socceroos star was asked when in Australia last week for a World Cup qualifier against Uzbekistan is he would ever cross to join city rivals Liverpool.

"Never. Never, never (would I join Liverpool)," Cahill told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"No money in this world could convince me to play for Liverpool.

"That's not a lack of respect for Liverpool supporters or the Football Club. It's respect for the Everton supporters.

"You just can't do that. It goes against everything that I stand for. No chance."

Cahill also spoke of his love for Everton and how special it is when he scores for the Toffees.

"Every time I score, the passion comes out and I try to relay that back to the fans and to the players and the staff at how grateful I am to be playing for such a good club," he added.

"I am part of the furniture at Everton but I don't take it for granted.

"I've got a chance of the FA Cup. I've got a lot of years left at Everton and hopefully I can make it longer, but it depends what the club thinks of you."
