David Moyes happy with what he is leaving

Sir Alex Ferguson and his replacement David Moyes

After overseeing the final game of the season, David Moyes believes he is leaving Everton with more pluses than minuses.

Moyes was on hand to watch his side battle it out at Stamford Bridge on Sunday where they were left to rue a late Fernando Torres goal which gave Chelsea a win.

Moyes was pleased with the performance of his players especially as, whatever the result, it was never going to alter their place in the Premier League.

He said: “Folk are now saying Everton are near the top and talking about Europa League and even Champions League. It was a big shock when we got knocked out of the cup by Wigan earlier this season. Yes, there are regrets, but hopefully I’ve left more pluses.

“A few weeks ago we went to Arsenal in a game we had to win and they had to win and showed a good mindset. We’ve been to Tottenham recently and did well, so we’ve had big games and improved. It’s not something to talk about but we’ve had a half, or a third, of the money the other teams are spending on wages.

“When you weigh it up there’s been an improvement. Everton have had a great season. Near enough from the first day to the last we’ve competed and been very close. We’ve had bad days but tell me any club or manager who doesn’t have them during a season? In a 10-month season they happen. I congratulated the players.

“The group of players I leave are a top group of players. They’ve got a good chance.”
