Anichebe: I don't regret Everton exit

Victor Anichebe has revealed he has no regrets about leaving Everton for West Bromwich Albion.

Victor Anichebe has quit international football.
Anichebe scored 26 goals during his time at Everton.

The Nigeria international began his career with the Toffees after emerging from the club's academy, spending well over a decade at Goodison Park.

Wanting a boost in his career, and ready for a change, Anichebe believes taking a leap of faith can help him shake off the feeling of being comfortable.

"I felt like a change could give me an added boost," Anichebe told BBC Sport. "I had a great time at Everton, I was there for 15 years. Of course there were ups and there were downs, but that is all part of life. After coming off a good season I just thought it would be good for me to build on that.

"Sometimes being at one place can make you take things for granted and feel too comfortable. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and see how it goes, if not you will always wonder what might have been."

Often used as a substitute while in an Everton shirt, Anichebe was able to net 26 goals in just under 170 appearances for the club -- a record that led him to admit he had hoped for a bigger impact at the club.

Revealing he spurned interest from a number of other suitors in favour of West Brom, Anichebe noted the number of defining moments he had enjoyed against the Baggies when making his decision.

"The only thing that disappoints me is not making more of a mark there and showing people the real me on a more consistent basis," he said. "But I'm blessed to have experienced some great times there. I can recall the European nights and how enjoyable they were for me and for the fans.

"Everton gave me the life and opportunity I have today, so I am forever grateful for that. Through being injured, the good times and the bad, Everton really helped me grow up and see things in a different aspect. It really is a great club and I want to say thank you to everyone that has supported me throughout my whole time there.

"There were a couple other clubs interested but l have had key moments in my career against West Brom, really defining moments. I scored my first senior goal against them in Duncan Ferguson's last game for Everton.

"I have scored a couple of goals against them on different occasions and also the most memorable was on New Year's day. I think two years ago, my father was really struggling in hospital and I scored the winner that day after coming back from a lengthy injury, the joy alone brought him back to life and I thank God. And West Brom are a very good stable club with good fans, good players and a good management team."
