Everton striker Oumar Niasse says he is delighted to have been brought in from the cold by Ronald Koeman, a year after the Dutchman said he had no future at Everton.
Niasse bagged Everton’s third goal in the win over Sunderland in the League Cup on Wednesday evening, and said that working hard and being professional have paid off.
“In life, everything can happen,” he said.
“That is what I am saying, always. Sometimes you think everything is going against you but it’s just the way that God chooses, the way that God gives to you.
“You have to live with that and be the nicest person you can be, work hard, be a professional and, even if you’re under-18, under-23 or with the first team, you have to work hard. That’s what I think is the best thing to do.”
