Nicolas Anelka claimed to have been forced out of the Chelsea by coach Andrea Villa-Boas in 2011, leaving the west Londoners to join China's Shanghai Shenhua on 1 January 2012.
Reports drawn up revealed the former Golden Boot recipient was outrightly banned from using Chelsea's first-team car park, and forced to use different changing rooms, including having training sessions with the club's youth team.
But "that's football for you" said the retired footballer, who scored 59 goals for Chelsea in 184 appearances.
But the former Chelsea man did not hit it off from the start. It took a while for him to steady himself at Stamford Bridge under Avram Grant, before fulfilling his role as a striker, going on ahead to win the Premier League with Chelsea and two FA Cup titles.
CenkTosun seemed like the right name for the job, playing the front berth as Toffees striker when he joined from Turkish club Besiktas in January, this year.
Though it was the turn of the year, and the Merseysiders were desperate to find "the one", Tosun was the pick of the bunch, "the man."
Adapting to the Premier League is a gruelling task, especially when you have been shipped in from a different league that infuses a contrasting style of play.
Tosun managed five goals in the second half of the Premier League season, last term.
However, he has yet to hit his straps this season with an unconvincing performance for the Toffees this term.
“Growing concerns continue to rise over the sum paid for his transfer, “ just as there was with Anelka during is “wavering start for Chelsea “in 2008.
But Tosun can learn a lot from Anelka, who was not fazed by the heaping challenges and worries of his ill performance during his first six months at Chelsea. He came back stronger and helped Chelsea lift the Premier League trophy in 2009. Everton fans can be rest assured their money got them the best buy.
