Everton captain Phil Neville believes Louis Saha's decision to leave Manchester United during the summer has given the French striker a chance to revitalise his career.

Saha swapped Old Trafford for Goodison Park on the final day of the transfer window, bringing an end to his frustrating four-and-a-half-year stint with the Red Devils.

The 30-year-old was plagued by injuries during his time with United, managing just 86 Premier League appearances since joining Sir Alex Ferguson's side from Fulham in 2004.

The former Metz man's frailty was exemplified by the saga surrounding his Toffees medical, which took several days to complete as the club sized up whether he would be worth the risk.

But manager David Moyes gambled on Saha, who was so determined to complete the move that he offered to go without pay should he be sidelined with injury.

Everton are already beginning to reap the rewards of their calculated risk-taking, with the France forward starring on debut in Sunday's comeback draw against Hull City.

And Neville believes his former United team-mate will make the very most of this opportunity to revive his career.

“Louis sees this as a fresh start — and when have a fresh start it can reinvigorate you,†said the England utility, who left Manchester in 2005.

“He's a lot more positive now than, maybe, he was at United and looks really fired up.â€
