Saha: No Goal Targets

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton striker Louis Saha is glad to have his future at the Club resolved, so he can get on with scoring goals.

But the Frenchman - who recently signed a two-year extension to his deal at Goodison Park - is refusing to set any goal targets, even though he has already struck 15 times this campaign.

"It's really good to have the contract talk settled," Saha said.

"It was a bit stressful and I'm glad we found an agreement. Now I want to show every day and at every opportunity that I can work hard.

"I don't set goal targets. I just want to play most of the games and get myself in a good position to score more goals and they will come. The main thing is to stay at the right level.

"I signed and committed my future to the club and my aim is to do the best I can."

The former Manchester United and Fulham forward scored both his side's goals in the 2-1 victory over Premier League Chelsea on Wednesday night. 

But he said that the team display and eventual result was more important - especially following the result against Liverpool.

Saha continued: "It was not about my performance, more about a great team spirit. I'm so happy to be a part of it.

"It was always going to be hard after we lost in the derby even though I don't think we played badly.

"It seemed like it was just not our day, so against a big club like Chelsea it was important we showed our belief and we took the opportunity.

"Now the main thing is that Everton are going up. It's a big month and we need to concentrate and keep the same level of performance as we climb up the table."

The full interview with Louis Saha will available on evertonTV soon.
