Everton’s James Rodriguez has joined the club from Real Madrid to help break a 25-year trophy drought at Goodison Park.
The last time the Toffees won silverware was in 1995, when they beat Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final.
That United squad included the likes of Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes – all of whom will be hoping to stop Everton at the first hurdle in the League Cup tonight when their Salford City travel to Goodison Park for a 9.15pm second-round clash.
The United legends, alongside ex-teammates Phil Neville, who later played for Everton, and David Beckham own 10 percent each in Salford.
It will take a miracle from the League Two side to beat the Toffees, with Everton buoyed by a 1-0 win over Spurs in their Premier League opener this past weekend.
With fellow new signings Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure also making a big difference at the club already, Rodriguez believes they can break their drought this term.
He says: “I’ve not come here in any way to be like the big star, not at all.
“I just want to do my bit to help and I want everyone to see I am hungry to win trophies.”
