Coleman defends Moyes' decision to wait on new Everton contract

Seamus Coleman has defended the decision of manager David Moyes to wait until the end of the season before deciding whether or not to extend his long stay at Everton, Sky Sports has reported.

Moyes’ current deal expires this summer and thus far, the manager has delayed revealing his intentions, having been at Goodison Park since March 2002 when he was appointed from Preston North End to replace Walter Smith.


Everton are currently sixth in the Premier League table, four points adrift of a place in the top four and two short of a fifth-place finish, having drawn with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening. Everton still have to play Liverpool at Anfield and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before the end of the season.


Coleman however believes Moyes has earned this grace period due to his long service to the Toffees, but concedes he hopes the Scot stays because of the influence he has had on his career.


The manager's situation is his own situation and he has been around long enough to earn the right to decide what he wants to do,” Coleman said. “Obviously we would all love him to stay but that is up to him and we have just got to keep playing as well as we can and try and finish as high in the league as we can.


Personally speaking he has been great for me, since I came in, he has always been there to tell me what I am doing well, what I have done wrong and a manager of his experience you are going to listen and you can see why he has been so successful at the club.


Coleman was signed by Moyes in 2009 from Sligo Rovers in the Republic of Ireland, spending time on loan at Blackpool a year later before establishing himself in the Everton first team.


He has now played almost 100 games for Everton, was nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2011 and signed a new long-term contract at Goodison in late December.
