LOUIS SAHA has revealed his determination to get back in the Everton first team.
The French striker has been left out of the last two matches by manager David Moyes and after receiving the news ahead of last weekend’s match with Wigan Athletic, vented his frustrations on Twitter.
But last night he used the same internet platform to answer supporters’ questions, with the 33-year-old forward says he is working hard to force his way back into the reckoning and played down the prospect of him joining former team-mate Yakubu at Blackburn Rovers anytime soon.
“I can’t be happy but have to work wait and see,” tweeted Saha in response to a question asking if he was happy being left out.
“Hopefully be back soon,” was another and “Really hope I can just get back playing well,” a further tweet of intent from the former Manchester United man.
Saha was posed all manner of questions but revealed his pleasure at being an Everton player when asked if Blackburn would be considered as a new club if he were to leave the Blues.
“Blackburn is another great club in the PL. Now I’m at Everton and happy,” said Saha.
However Saha was less committal when queried if interest in the transfer window from a wealthy Russian club or an outfit in America’s Major League Soccer were to surface.
“In every transfer window you have to consider. It is quite a stressful period in the life of a player,” he replied.
Ahead of the weekend’s trip to the Etihad Stadium meanwhile, Phil Jagielka has described Manchester City’s form as scary.
But the England centre back says Everton have continued to be successful against Roberto Mancini’s men because of their ability to hit teams on the counter attack.
“The form of both Manchester teams has been frightening so far,” said Jagielka.
“They have taken the Premier League by the scruff of the neck.
“If I do my homework on all of Man City’s strikers it will take a few nights but we’ll have a good idea of what team they are going to play. It is going to be a hard game but we have done well against them, especially at City’s ground.
“We are quite suited to playing on the counter attack. Man City play 4-2-4 so you get opportunities to hit them on the break.”
