David Moyes remains coy on future with Everton
Everton manager David Moyes has confirmed he will not be moving out of the Merseyside before the end of the season. The Goodison Park boss has announced that he will decide about his future once the season is over.
David Moyes led his side to a 1-0 victory over Stoke City on Saturday to come within four points of fourth-placed Chelsea on the Premier League table.
The Everton board is trying to persuade David Moyes into extending his stay at the club, but the Scotsman has offered no insurances about remaining with the Toffees after this season ends. Interestingly, David Moyes’ contract with Everton also ends this summer and with Chelsea searching for a new manager this summer could leave the Everton board in hunt for a new boss.
David Moyes has been linked with a couple of top notch Premier League clubs in recent years. Apart from Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly still interested in signing David Moyes as their new manager.
For now, David Moyes claims he wants to bring Everton into the top-four for a Champions League spot before analyzing his away move.
“I've always said we want to see how the club do and see how we can move forward together and the best time for us to discuss that is at the end of the season,” David Moyes told ESPN.
“We are the big underdogs, we need results to go for us as well as us winning our games, but we are in there and it is a great thing to say Everton are in with a chance of the Champions League. We deserve to be there because of how well we've played this season.”
David Moyes praised his men for putting in another great performance. The 49-year-old gaffer reserved special praise for Kevin Mirallas, whose effort earned Everton an important home victory.
“We've not had a great record against Stoke City recently so it was important we got the three points, David Moyes continued.
“It was a great goal. Against Stoke sometimes you need individual players to win you the game because they are really well organized and hard to break down.
“I think he must have run 70 yards to finish it off. He has given us something else. We changed how we played today as we had lost two important players and thankfully we got the points.”
