10 tweets that suggest shock candidate for Everton cult hero

A new cult hero appears to be emerging on Merseyside, and it sure isn’t Jurgen Klopp.

Across Stanley Park from the German lies a 21-year old Bosnian midfielder entering his second season as an Everton player.

His name is Muhamed Besic.

Amid the array of exciting names plying their trade at Goodison Park, the former Ferencvárosi  man has largely gone unnoticed since his arrival in 2014.

While the likes of John Stones, Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku take many of the plaudits in the national press, diehard fans on social media have not missed the Bosnian international’s recent performances.

A household name he may not be, but Toffees fans on Twitter are sweet on their £4m midfielder, believing him to be one of their most exciting players.

He had an eventual first few minutes, creating the first real opportunity of the game by pressing forward with a direct run before hitting the post.

However,, his game was curtailed by a recurrence of his hamstring issue, much to the dismay of the Everton faithful.
