Kenwright: Moyes one of the best

Published Add your comment

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright believes David Moyes' status as one of football's best managers is already secure.

Despite modest investment in the team by the standards of the top flight, Everton have been regulars in the upper echelons of the division since Moyes took charge in 2002.

And Kenwright said: "I said five years ago that I felt that our man would one day become one of the very great managers in football. For me he has already achieved this."

He added: "He devotes every waking hour to this football club - and I'm truly proud and grateful to have him as my friend and our manager."

In typically dedicated style, Moyes will have little time for festivities over the Christmas period.

"We work Christmas day. If you've been a footballer, you understand that this is a time when you work," Moyes said.

"I think if you were paid as much as the players are, then you would be quite happy to work over Christmas.

"Everyone is entitled to enjoy Christmas and so they should, but in the same breath you're paid to do your job and footballers are paid to work over Christmas - there's doctors nurses and policemen that work, so we're no different."
