Envious of Liverpool signings

Everton manager David Moyes has stated his frustration at having to watch Liverpool equivalent Kenny Dalglish spend big over the summer.

The blue side of Merseyside’s financial constraints have been well documented, and their Scottish coach has had no money to spend on new players.

He has instead resorted to bringing players in on loan, and was forced to sell Mikel Arteta to Arsenal, whilst the Anfield outfit have spent heavily.

Ahead of the Merseyside derby on Saturday, Moyes has revealed that he was interested in bringing some of Liverpool’s new faces to Goodison Park.

“You do feel deflated at first. But once it’s done and you take it in then you say, ’Stuff it. I’m getting on with it’, and you do what you can,” he told reporters at a press conference.

“I was interested in Charlie Adam but couldn’t afford him. It was the same situation with Craig Bellamy.

“It’s a big challenge for us to get up to Liverpool because they have a lot of things going in their favour. I don’t think we feel in anyway behind but at this moment in time the finances show that Liverpool are able to spend greater than Everton,” he concluded.
