Everton manager David Moyes has agreed with Tim Cahillâ€™s decision to step down from Australian duties this summer.
The 31-year old attacking midfielder has been out of action in recent matches with a foot injury and said in an interview with The World Game that he would not return home for friendlies in June.
Moyes said it was a smart choice by Cahill who really needs to get back to his best and can achieve that by staying with his club.
â€śHe definitely needs a break because he played in the World Cup and then he went to the Asian Games. I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s helpful, in fact itâ€™s really hindered him in my eyes,â€ť Moyes said.
â€śBecause of that I think he needs to start looking after himself, to get himself in condition. Heâ€™s been really good for Everton but Everton have also been really good for him as well so I think itâ€™s important he does look at the club and I think because of that he will probably not get involved in any of the friendlies in Australia.â€ť
