Everton boss Moyes hails Heitinga form turnaround

Everton boss David Moyes has hailed the recent form of Johnny Heitinga.

The defender dubbed his display against Aston Villa six weeks ago the worst in his four years at Everton.

But Goodison gaffer Moyes said: "John is mentally very strong.

"He's played in a World Cup final and against all the top players, so I think that single-mindedness brought him through.

"He had some real bad periods in the season.

"In a way, he had to prove himself again. If it was anyone else it would have broken them but John's Dutch mentality got him through it."
