NYRB's Cahill: I left Everton on a high!

Tim Cahill believes he left Everton on a positive note after eight years on Merseyside.

The 33-year old Australian international departed Goodison Park to join New York Red Bull in July last year and although it was difficult to leave, he felt it was the right time after such a successful career with the Toffees.

"I'm lucky to have a great relationship with [Everton manager] David Moyes, the chairman and also the fans," he told FIFA.com.

"I think I left Everton on a high, a massive high.

"They were in a good place where they could kick on regardless of me leaving or not. I think I didn't jump ship when the time was bad. I left at a time when the ship was steady.

"Do I miss the Premier League and Everton? Yes and no. I had eight amazing years at such a great club. The level of football is different but when you go to a different league and be part of a different project, you have to embrace everything."
