Cahill: Twisting the knife
Everton hero Tim Cahill has reminded the billionaires at Manchester City that money cannot buy love.
The Australian helped his club to an entertaining victory at Eastlands on Monday night as the Toffees maintained their voodoo sign over City.
Roberto Mancini's team, financed by Sheikh Mansour, missed out on top spot in the Premier League as a result of the defeat to leave a feeling of disappointment at Christmas.
And Cahill has warned City that they must consider factors such as team spirit and longevity, which he believes underpin the Everton work ethic.
He said in The Sun: "Man City are a big team now with where they are in the table and in the world of football.
"But what we have here at Everton is a close group and a good base of lads who really love the club.
"And with the youngsters coming through, I wouldn't want it any other way.
"What has happened there is a dream come true for City, but it is also hard.
"They need to put all those ingredients together in a way which will give them a team with longevity.
"We have good players here and we get excited about these big games. They have got some big names but we can compete with anyone."
