Players have nothing to prove to Moyes says Jags

Players have nothing to prove to Moyes says Jags

David Moyes might be playing his cards close to his chest in discussions about his future, but can Everton do anything to persuade him to stay?

Despite Sky Sports claiming that 'Everton's players are powerless to have any influence over David Moyes' in typical sensationalistic rubbish, Moyes who is out-of-contract at Everton at the end of the season and has previously been linked with the job at Chelsea. Has said that he wants to wait and 'see how the team do' in both the FA Cup and the Premier League before deciding his future in the summer.

That does kind of indicate that Everton do have some influence over the decision, be it, winning the FA Cup or qualifying for the Champions League. If either of those to achievements were accomplished then perhaps he'll stay?

'We don't have to feel that we have to prove anything. The manager has pretty much brought every single player in, bar one or two, so we are his players.

'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.'
Phil Jagielka told Sky Sports: '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.'

He added: 'Obviously, it will be nice to give him a quick reminder of how good we are by keeping this cup run going and pushing as high as we can up the Premier League, At the end of the day, if we do win the cup and he doesn't sign, it will still be a fantastic feat for the players.

'We are a very close squad and we get on very well. As much as we go out there to do it for the manager, we do it for each other as well.
