🚨EXCLUSIVE : Everton’s seasoned midfielder, recently confessed that his return to Goodison Park was not initially part of his career trajectory


Idrissa Gana Gueye, the Everton midfielder, has revealed that he never planned to return to the club after his departure in 2019. Gueye initially joined Everton from Aston Villa in 2016 and quickly became a vital player at Goodison Park.

His impressive performances caught the attention of Paris Saint-Germain, who signed him in July 2019.

During his time at PSG, Gueye made 111 appearances, won two league and cup doubles, and reached the 2020 Champions League final. However, he found himself out of favor in his final season and was allowed to return to Everton in 2022.

Since his return, Gueye has been instrumental in Everton’s midfield, topping the charts for tackles and possessions won in the middle third.

He also emerged as a goal threat towards the end of the 2023/24 season, scoring three times in his last six Premier League appearances.

Gueye admitted that returning to Everton wasn’t part of his plan, but he couldn’t resist the opportunity to come back. “Honestly, it wasn’t in my plan to return to Everton – I was in Paris and I thought I would stay there for a long time and fight with them, but then when I got the call from Everton to say they were interested in bringing me back, and I couldn’t say no,” he told Everton’s official website.

The 34-year-old midfielder also expressed his desire to help Everton move forward and become a top-half Premier League team once again. “I will always give everything I have for Everton. Ultimately, as a Club, we’ve got to learn from things that have happened before and move forward because nobody wants the trend of just surviving to continue – it can’t be normal for Everton. The Club will find solutions, I’m sure. We stay positive and move forward.”
