Everton fans call for return of Kevin Campbell

Everton’s official Twitter account wished former striker Kevin Campbell, who turned out on 147 occasions for the club and managed 45 goals in all competitions between 1999 and 2005, a happy birthday on Monday and Toffees fans were quick to react.

Campbell started his professional career with Arsenal, but departed the Gunners in 1995 for Nottingham Forest, before also representing Trabzonspor ahead of a move to Everton.

It would be fair to say that the striker was a popular figure at Goodison Park and he certainly knew how to find the back of the net.

Everton do not really have a starting striker at the moment, which has placed incredible pressure on Richarlison to continue gettingon the score-sheet.

Indeed, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun have both struggled for goals this season and the Everton fans would not mind having Campbell back.

He may now be 49 years of age, but a number of Toffees supporters feel that the former striker could still do a job for the team in the final third of the field.
