CAHILL WILL BE A SUCCESS
Former Everton loan star Landon Donovan has said that he is confident that the new arrival to MLS – Tim Cahill – can be a huge success in the United States. Everton recently agreed a deal to sell their star midfielder Tim Cahill to MLS club New York red Bulls for around £ 1 million. Tim Cahill has been extremely crucial in the success that Everton have achieved in the last eight seasons. He initially joined the club back in 2004 for a transfer fee of just £ 1.5 million from Millwall. Even though he is a midfielder, he is known for his goal scoring abilities, although he managed only three goals last season.
Despite this, Landon Donovan is extremely confident that he is a player to provide a new dimension of an attacking player within MLS. Landon Donovan knows Tim Cahill better than anyone else after having spent two seasons on loan at Everton. The former Arsenal great Thierry Henry also said that he is confident that Tim Cahill can prove to be a success at his club. Henry recently started the 3-2 win for the MLS all-star against Chelsea in a pre-season friendly match. He is excited to combine with Tim Cahill to great effect.
“I didn’t speak to Tim about this particularly. I would have preferred to have him in LA but it’s a great opportunity for him and fingers crossed everything works out for him. He always spoke very fondly of our league. Most players and their families enjoy the prospect of living in America. There are a lot of pluses to playing here, and now when the league has made the sort of financial commitments they have made to players it sweetens the pot even more,” Donovan said after it was announced that Tim Cahill would be moving to the MLS.
