David Moyes described the returning Steven Pienaar as âthe best player on the pitchâ and Distin agreed that the South African made a real impression in his first game back at the Club.
âWe really missed him when he left and we never really replaced him,â he told evertontv. âHe just always wants the ball. Even if he has a player sat on his back he wants the ball. That makes it easier for us at the back â we kept the ball a lot better and that was largely down to him.â
