Premier League is something different. Cenk is still a good player and can do a lot better than this in a more posession based team but neither Sam’s nor Silva’s tactical approach is suitable for him. It’s his bad luck that the manager who bought him was a huge joke and his replacement’s tactics doesn’t suit him. I will not be suprised anymore if he is getting sold and doing great again in another club. This league and this year’s bad form has damaged his confidence, no question. He was dominating Champions League last 2 years at Besiktas (not comparing him to Messi or Ronaldo’s goalscoring of course) and now he has just lost his place at Everton. It should be hard for him.
Still, he was the one who said “EPL is my dream and I don’t wanna miss this offer” then left Besiktas in January for Everton. We struggled after him, dropped all the way to 4th place... He gave his everything for us and just because of that we loved him and there were no bad feelings when he was leaving. As he wanted to come here that badly, he should have worked harder than this. He didn’t to be fair and deserves to be benched for a long time until he is ready (If he can ever be)
But some Everton fans are really biased and blinkered about him. He is still a good striker. If a player is not good at Everton it doesn’t mean he is shit or vice versa.
