Hahnemann backs talented Saha

Goalkeeper says Louis Saha is "one of the greatest players"

Saha: Back involved for Everton after a fall-out with manager David Moyes last month

New Everton goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann claims Louis Saha is one of the greatest players he has ever played with.

Saha is back in the fold at Goodison Park after a recent fall out with manager David Moyes.

The 33-year-old striker was left out of the squad to face Wigan last month which prompted a Twitter rant.

But he is now back in the squad and expected to play against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend after starting in the defeat to Liverpool a fortnight ago.

The Toffee's also have Hahnemann in their ranks after the shot-stopper joined on a short term contract at the end of September.

The former Wolves and Reading 'keeper has been brought it to act as cover for first choice number one Tim Howard.


The 39-year-old told the Liverpool Echo that Saha is an impressive talent: "I played with Saha at Fulham and it's great to be reunited with him again. He's still one of the greatest I've ever played with.

"He could shoot the ball with either foot equally as well. Not many people in the game can do that.

"He's got speed and he just glides when he runs it doesn't even look like he touches the ground. I don't get it, because when I run it hurts!"
