Ex-Everton star Idrissa Gueye pays tribute to Toffees fans

Premiership Picks

With all due respect to the Toffees, it was quite the career move when Idrissa Gana Gueye moved on to PSG this summer.

The Senegalese midfielder swapped Goodison Park for the Parc des Princes, and on Wednesday evening he made his Champions League bow for the Parisiens.

It couldn’t have been against tougher opposition either – Gueye had to face 13-time champions Real Madrid in his first Champions League match.

In the end, it was a rather simple task as PSG comfortably beat Los Blancos 3-0, and Rio Ferdinand was full of praise for the former Everton man, as the stats show he dropped a midfield master-class.

Gueye was grateful for the praise, but Everton fans wanted to point out that they spotted his talents before anyone else.

The former Aston Villa man said that he would always respect the Goodison Park faithful for believing in him.
