Moyes targets Toffees glory
26 Feb 2008 - 08:04:18
Everton boss David Moyes admitted that he is hoping to return the club to the glory days of the 1980s, following their 2-0 victory at Manchester City.
Goals from Yakubu and Joleon Lescott moved the Toffees back up to fourth place in the Premier League, with a Champions League spot well and truly up for grabs.
Moyes said after the win at Eastlands: "If you ask what my motivation is, it is to try and develop the club. We want to get back to the stage it was many years ago. That's the aim.
"This was an important result for us given that Manchester City are right in there for European football. It was as good as we have performed on an away ground and an excellent victory.
"To get to 50 points at this stage of the season is fantastic and we have to keep building on it. The players are getting better and European football has helped us.
"There is a belief we can get good results and I certainly believe in the players.
"We played well against City and defended superbly. We kept our discipline and made it hard for them to break us down."
