Tosun is finding it difficult to adapt to the pace of English Football – Allardyce
Everton Manager, Sam Allardyce has recently spoken about the difficulty that January new recruit, Cenk Tosun who was signed from the Turkish side, Besiktas is facing in adapting himself with the pace and system of English Football. The former England Boss explained in obvious defence of his player that he is confident about Tosun’s ability and sooner rather than later, the forward will be in his best form again.
Though there is little doubt that the veteran manager would have expected more from a striker who is believed to be in his prime after the amount of money the club invested in him. Truly, Tosun was clearly one of the most-sought-after forward in Europe after his brilliant displays with his former club in the Turkish League and most especially in the UEFA Champions League.
Besiktas, thanks to an attack that consist of Cenk Tosun, Ricardo Quaresma, Anderson Talisca and former Liverpool prodigy, Ryan Babel bossed their group in the group stages of the Champions League, a group that contain last season’s wonder, Monaco as well as Bundesliga phenomenon, RB Leipzig and Portuguese side, FC Porto.
As a result of Tosun’s little contribution to the club at this stage of the season alongside a host of other signings in recent transfer windows that have been questionably below standard, Everton’s director of football, Steve Walsh is at a risk of losing his job as the club fans are getting increasingly angered by how poorly their new signings have done in direct comparison with the club’s ambition.
