Cahill hails 'talented' Anichebe

BY foxsports • May 12, 2011

The 23-year-old forward who is also a Nigerian international has yet to score in 14 league appearances and doubts remain over whether he will fulfil his potential at Goodison Park despite him signing a new four-and-a-half-year contract in January. However, midfielder Cahill is convinced Anichebe, who made his first-team debut aged 17, is heading in the right direction. "Victor has had a few injuries but his work ethic and what he did on Saturday showed what the lad is all about," he said. "It's hard, people need to understand he's still a young boy. "There is a lot of expectation when you break into a first team from such a young age. When you lose the ball and the crowd get on top of you there's pressure. "I got it all the time but luckily enough I can deal with it. Other people react differently but on Saturday his reaction was first class. This is a turning point for the crowd and Victor. Hopefully he can now fulfil his potential because he's got a lot of talent."
