Fellaini believes Everton can break into Champions League under Moyes

Sky Sports have reported that Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini is confident that the club can finish in a Champions League qualification position under the management of David Moyes.

The Belgian international has proven to be key player for Everton this season, leading the club’s goal scoring charts with 11 goals in 26 league appearances from midfield.

The club currently sit in sixth place in the league following a draw away to fourth placed Arsenal, a point that leaves them only four points from a qualification spot. Fellaini has praised the job Moyes has done at Goodison, especially considering the budgetary restraints put on him in comparison to the teams around them.

In 10 years he has made the club stronger and has positioned us just outside the top four or five clubs,” Fellaini said. “We don’t have the same budget as Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea or Tottenham either, yet we are still doing well.

Playing in the Champions League would be great. We have a good team and I don’t think we are far from it. But we have to work hard and win our games.

Everton broke into the top four under Moyes’ management in 2005, only for them to fail to get through the qualification rounds to enter the tournament’s group stage. The Scot’s contract is up in the summer and he is remaining quiet regarding his future plans, instead insisting that his one and only focus is to end this current campaign on a high.
