Neville lauds ‘legend’ Cahill

Everton captain Phil Neville believes Tim Cahill is rapidly making himself into a genuine Goodison Park legend.

The Australia midfielder's 90th minute winner helped the Toffees snatch a 3-2 victory at Blackburn Rovers last weekend and Neville is full of admiration for his team-mate.

Cahill has made over 200 first-team appearances since joining the Merseyside club from Millwall back in 2004.

"People earlier in the season were writing Tim off, but I saw the effort that he was putting in," Neville told the club's official website.

"The fact that he was playing out of position then, but he was still fighting and cajoling the lads shows his spirit.

"He took the captaincy in probably our worst run as a team, but he carried the fight then for the whole of the team. I think that took its toll for a bit but now I think you are seeing the real Tim Cahill.

"I think he is becoming a legend at this club. He is slowly writing himself into the history books at Everton.

"I think the fans now realise that we have got such a special player in Tim.

"He is a great player around the dressing room. When he is on the pitch he always looks like he is going to get a goal too."
