njuries aside, Steven Pienaar’s career is stagnating and many felt that the former Everton winger was already surplus to requirements when he joined the club last winter. It could be a long wait before he makes his way back into the Spurs first team and it seems that his former employers may now be preparing a move to take him back to Merseyside.
Pienaar could be set to make his first appearance of the season against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League but as far as the Premiership is concerned, Gareth Bale’s form and fitness seem destined to keep the South African on the subs bench at best.
In the meantime, it is reported that Everton tried to re-sign their former player of the year in the summer but the bid was rejected. A fresh approach in January could be met with a better reception however.
Pienaar could still be useful as cover for Bale but on recent from, Danny Rose and even Andros Townsend look to be better options. With a career at the crossroads, the best way forward for all concerned could be a move back to Pienaar’s former club.
