Cahill couldn’t bare to face Blues

Tim CahillTim Cahill says that he could not bare to play against Everton, and says he rejected moves back to Premier League because of his fondness for the club.

“I spent 15 or 16 years in England,” he said. “Everton was special, it was a big part of my life. It’s like my second home and I have some of the best memories from there.

“I flew back and watched Arsenal against Tottenham and caught up with Mikel Arteta, one of my closest friends while I was there. I remember scoring goals at some of these stadiums and it’s a real nice feeling.

Cahill revealed that David Moyes had spoken to him about a return to Everton, along with other managers and clubs, but says that once it didn’t happen at Goodison he knew he wouldn’t play in England again.

“I even went back to the training ground and sat with David and some of my old teammates and it’s crazy – you still get the butterflies,” he said.

 “We spoke about a return, we had a few chats actually and I spoke to other managers while I was there, too. It’s nice to know there’s still interest in Europe for me.

“It just didn’t happen because it didn’t feel right for me to play for another club. It’s time to move on.”
