Moyes makes emotional final Goodison Park appearance as Everton boss

12 May 2013 17:10

David Moyes is hopeful that Everton fans will acknowledge the progress made under his stewardship as he prepares to leave Goodison Park.

Moyes used his programme notes for his final home game in charge of the club, Sunday's Premier League clash with West Ham, to reflect on his whirlwind departure from Merseyside.

The 50–year-old Scot was swiftly announced on Thursday as Alex Ferguson's successor at Manchester United, bringing an end to his 11-year spell in charge of Everton.

In that time Moyes has guided the club into the UEFA Champions League for the first time, rebuilt and remoulded the side numerous times following high-profile players departures and consistently challenged for a top-six place in the Premier League.

There is no doubt that Moyes has worked wonders at Everton and he admitted he leaves for Old Trafford with a heavy heart.

"I hope that most Evertonians would see we have moved the club into the higher reaches of the Premier League more often than they had previously," he wrote.

"Over the years we've had brilliant players come through the door but more importantly I think I have had great men and I would never have been given any opportunity to succeed at Everton if it wasn't for the help that I have received from all the players who have worked under me.

"I have brought nearly all the current players to Everton in my time and I do feel disappointed to be leaving them.

"They are all very much a part of what I have been trying to achieve at Everton and they have all bought into it. I have spoken to them and explained my situation, which they fully understand.

"It goes without saying my only interest is that we try to win the last two games of the season."
