Pundit makes bold claim about former Everton star Cahill

Tim Cahill will go down as a fan favourite at Everton following his eight-year spell at the Merseyside club.

Between 2004 and 2012, the 37-year-old was among the Toffees’ attacking contingent.

Cahill ended up scoring 68 goals in 277 appearances and became known for his goal celebration, which would involve him throwing some punches at the corner flag.

Five years ago, the forward left Merseyside to join MLS club New York Red Bulls and from then had spells in the Far East with Shanghai Shenhua and Hangzhou Greentown.

Despite being on the wrong side of 30, Cahill is still competing – currently at Melbourne City – and he scored twice for Australia against Syria to book his nation’s place in the playoffs of the World Cup.

Phil Neville, who played alongside Cahill for seven years, made an interesting claim on Twitter when asked where he would place his former teammate in terms of quality.

It is worth noting that the ex-England international played with some Manchester United greats during his career, so his tweet is quite the accolade for Cahill.
