Fair play to Niasse. I know people will say hes stolen a living for long enough but he didnt have to do this. Was a nice touch (this is until I find out the final percentage of his wage was 0.05%!!!).
"In particular a special thank you to Mr Roberto Martinez and the Everton Board for making this possible.
“Although my circumstances were public and personally challenging, I leave Everton FC with a record of a goal every 3 games of playing time for the club.
"And I will always incentivise any young black athlete to come to England and perform at the highest level, no matter the difficulties, no matter the challenges.
"The Everton backroom staff, the fans and the North West of England welcomed me with open arms and I can only say again, thank you.
“Finally, I have decided to donate a percentage of my final week’s salary to the St Andrew’s Community Network who operate the North Liverpool Foodbank.
"They are doing an extraordinary work in very challenging circumstances and they are a reminder that together we can all contribute and play an active and positive role in society.
"I now look forward to my next challenge in football.”
