Tosun talks Blues struggles

Cenk Tosun has opened up about his time at Everton since his £27 million move in January from Turkish Champions, Beşiktaş.

He wasn’t signed in time to make his debut in the FA Cup Merseyside derby, but he started the two following games against Spurs and West Brom.

The 26-year-old striker was taken off by Sam Allardyce around the hour mark in both clashes and didn’t feature against Leicester in the following fixture.

He came off the bench at the Emirates with ten minutes left to play, but the game was gone and the Turkish international couldn’t make an impact.

In an interview with Turkish outlet Haberturk, Tosun has explained his sticky situation at the Toffees.

“It’s not easy to adjust to a new environment, a new atmosphere, new friends even a new house.

“Even though I was born in Europe this situation is different.

“I moved from Turkish league which the league I’m playing for years to the toughest league in the world. It’s hard to adapt. Sam told me that too.

“He always talks to me. I’ve zero problems. He told me that when I fit into the league and team, I’ll be a regular starter.”

He was questioned on whether he is looking to move back to his homeland, he replied “I’ve zero interest going back to Turkey at this point.

“Yes I’m a Besiktas fan, but I’ll never return to them without fighting and achieving things in Everton. That’s not me.

“I’ll show everyone in England who is Cenk Tosun.

“I have a dream. I never quit a work before completing it.

“After I finalise my mission in here, and if the conditions are suitable I’d love to go back to Turkey but it’s too early for that.

“I’ve just started to know my team-mates. In Besiktas, my team-mates knew where I was going be on the pitch before they passed. They knew what I was going to do. In here they’ll learn that too in time.”
