Everton defender Phil Jagielka is adamant that uncertainty surrounding manager David Moyes’ future will not derail their season.
But, as the club enter the vital period of the season, Moyes’ future is far from clear, with the Scot delaying contract talks with chairman Bill Kenwright.
He is thought to be considering his future, and is keen to see whether Everton secure European football for next season.
Moyes has been linked with a number of jobs in recent times, with some suggesting he may be the long-term successor to Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson.
It is also believed that he could be keen on moving abroad to further his abilities and reputation within European football.
Despite this, Jagielka is adamant that the squad are just focused on performing week in, week out:
“The manager has pretty much brought every single player in, so we are his players.” He is quoted by the Daily Mail.
“He has made decisions that he wants to make. He has come out in the press and said he will not sign anything until the end of the season, which is fine with us.
