Amokachi backs Anichebe for Everton success

Former Everton striker Daniel Amokachi believes that Victor Anichebe will finally fulfil his potential at the Toffees this season and says that the forward will become a more consistent performer with a full pre-season under his belt, according to The Liverpool Echo.

The Nigeria assistant manager says the 23-year-old is still regarded as a promising young talent in Nigeria and Amokachi thinks a bright future lies in front of him.

Anichebe was kept out of the team for most of last season due to injury, making just 18 appearances for the Toffees, but Amokachi feels that if the striker can reap the benefits of a full pre-season then he will be fit and ready to go by the time the new campaign kicks off.

Amokachi said: “Victor has been playing well for Nigeria and that has been good for his confidence. Hopefully he can bring that form back to Everton with him.

“In Nigeria he is seen as a player with a lot of potential. He has done well for the national team and is viewed as a player who can be a star of the future.

“The Nigerian fans like him a lot as they always like players who give you 100 per cent. Victor always does that. Even when things aren’t going well for him he tries his best.”
