Moyes: A Tough Week

I’ve had to keep it together at times, says boss.

David Moyes has reflected on a week of emotions as he comes to terms with the prospect of bidding farewell to the Blues.
 
It was confirmed last week Moyes would take up the reins at Old Trafford on July 1, replacing the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson.
 
Moyes has admitted that the response of fans, players and staff at Everton has increased the emotional impact on him in the days since the announcement.
 
He said: "It's been tough and I had to try to keep it together at times in the last week or so. Strangely enough there's been different things. I walked around the corner at Goodison after parking my car last week coming into the game against West Ham and all the stewards were there and they applauded me coming in. I found that really tough. And I found the end of the game very tough. Thankfully, the players were laughing and making me smile which took the real emotion away from it.
 
"It's been a tough week because it's meant an awful lot to me, Everton. It's been a big part of my life. And Thursday night [at the awards] was emotional because I was saying cheerio to a lot of the people who are very close to me."
 
As Moyes prepares to take charge of his final match as Goodison chief, he is hugely appreciative of the way in which he has been able to say goodbye.

The Scot admits, however, he hasn’t yet thought about his last words to the squad he has moulded during his 11-year tenure.

“I've not because I've sort of been talking to the players all along and we know this is coming,” he said. “I'll be sad to leave them though because, with the exception of Ossie and Hibbo, I brought them all in.”
