Everton boss in the spotlight after FA Cup disaster
The Latics beat Moyes’ side in a game decided in the first-half in which Roberto Martinez’s men booked a spot at Wembley with three goals in as many minutes.
Fingers have been pointed at the Scot, whose contract runs out in June, and many are suggesting it is time for a change at the Merseyside club.
While a sector of the fans believe the Everton hierarchy have been lenient with Moyes, making the club settle with their current status, others suggest his work has not been given enough credit.
The Scotsman, who has led the team for the last 11 years, eluded to the debate by saying his enthusiasm at the club is there for all to see.
“I still have the same appetite for that job,” Moyes insisted.
Although he admitted the cup defeat against the Premier League strugglers cannot be excused by the lack of signings.
“It had nothing to do with those issues, or anything else, it was just a poor performance.”
Moyes still suggested he knows where the squad could be improved, hinting that the club’s performance could have been boosted had he been given the funds to strengthen the starting XI.
“I’ve always known what I need to do to move it forward here but a lot of those things aren’t apparent to people viewing from the outside,” he added.
