Neville welcomes Pienaar return

Everton captain Phil Neville believes Steven Pienaar is back to his best at a club that loves him.

The South Africa playmaker caught the eye with a goalscoring return to Goodison Park in Saturday's 2-0 Barclays Premier League in over Chelsea. Pienaar, 29, rejoined the Toffees on loan on last month's transfer deadline day after a frustrating year on the fringes of the Tottenham team.

Neville said: "It was a great performance from Pienaar. He is obviously back doing what he does best at a club he enjoys playing at. I don't think he realises how well thought of he is here. When he was at Tottenham I don't think there was a day that went past when we didn't speak about him."
