Everton boss Moyes has word with Fellaini concerning press comments

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini returned from international duty with Belgium to find the boss David Moyes waiting to have a word with him about comments he made whilst away. The 24-year-old told journalists from his homeland: "This will be one of my last seasons. I have seen everything. In January, or at the end of the season, I will look for another club or league."

Moyes felt Fellaini had been naive but insisted the matter was now closed.

"I think sometimes the players, when they go away on international duty, have their egos massaged and things are said when they maybe think they are talking to a different audience," he said.

"They think maybe they can say things which don't matter - well, it does matter and I've made Marouane aware of that.

"The transfer window shut a while ago so it doesn't really matter.

"These things happen, I've had a word with him and we move on."
