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

Everton midfielder Tim Cahill says he would never leave Everton to play for rivals 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."
