Former Everton player Tim Cahill has come out and defended his ex coach, David Moyes, following his sacking yesterday.
Cahill, 34, played under the Scott for eight years before making his move across the pond to the New York Red Bulls in the summer of 2012. He is one of the Toffees most idolised midfielders, and played in the team that finished fourth in the 2005 season. After that, the Aussie went on to 68 goals in all competitions. For £1.5million Cahill is considered one of the best signings of Moyes' career.
After discovering the news of his old manager's dismissal, Cahill took to Twitter to vent his frustration.
"Managers get all the blame these days. Where has win together and lose together gone as staff,players and fans. 10mths is no time for anyone," he posted.
"Wish Moyes all the best. Football is a great but also cruel game. Anyone after sir Alex was going to have a tough time."
The midfielder then went on retweet a picture showing that Moyes won more games in his first season than Sir Alex Ferguson and the great, Sir Matt Busby. The Australian international is currently unavailable for his club with a hamstring injury which he picked up against Chivas USA last month.
