Moyes defeated 2-1 by Chelsea in last Everton game
Everton had to face defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the last game of the season. In spite of defeat the Goodison Park boss David Moyes had helped Everton acquire sixth position on the Premier League table.
The incumbent Manchester United manager, David Moyes admitted he was sad to leave the Merseyside club. The Scotsman also revealed that he would probably be doing two jobs at once for a while before permanently shifting to Manchester United this summer.
The 50-year-old has been handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson and rest of the Manchester United staff to become the new boss of Old Trafford. After the last Premier League game of the season, David Moyes spoke to players hoping they realized that he had left the club in a better position than it was before.
“I'll probably be doing two jobs for the next week or so,” David Moyes said. “I'm sad that I'm leaving Everton. Look at the players. I brought every one of them, except Tony Hibbert and Leon Osman, who were already here.
“I hope every one of them will think it was worthwhile joining Everton. I hope I'm leaving the club in a better condition than when I took over and I think the group of players they've got are a top group of players.”
David Moyes, who was in his 518th match with Everton, wished his successor the best luck and hopes all stays well at Goodison Park.
“In truth we've probably done as well as we can do at Everton,” David Moyes said. “We've pushed close to try to break into the top four, up until about three weeks ago, it just started to get away from us.
“I'll go into Finch Farm [Everton's training ground] some of the days next week and make sure everything's in place for whoever the incoming manager is. Most of it is anyway, but I'll just make sure that everything's as ready as I can leave it.”
