'Der Hammer' Eyes More Chances
Thomas Hitzlsperger keen to play - and shoot.
Thomas Hitzlsperger is keen for the opportunity to unleash his ferocious left-foot for Everton.
The former Germany international made his Blues debut in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Sunderland as a late substitute.
After two months training with the Club and just weeks after signing a short-term contract, Hitzlsperger's brief cameo did afford him one opportunity of a shot on goal.
His effort didn't find the target but the 30-year-old is keen to repay the faith shown in him by his new comrades by utilising the element in his armoury which earned him the nickname 'Der Hammer' during previous spells in England with Aston Villa and West Ham.
He told evertontv: "Everybody was saying before the game, if I get a chance then have a shot at goal. One did fall for me but unfortunately I couldn't get it on target.
"I should have done better but there are more games to come and i will think about it carefully.
"The whole time I've been here, it is such a good place to be and I want to play more and contribute more to the Club's success.
"I was delighted to get on the pitch as I've been waiting to get a chance for a long time. I've been training with the lads for two months now and hopefully I will get more opportunities in the next few weeks."
