Steven Pienaar has no plans to leave Everton as he focuses on keeping fit for the new campaign.
â€śIâ€™m definitely staying,â€ť Pienaar, who anticipates no summer transfer activity, told Sport24. â€śMy goals are to stay fit and feature in as many games as possible.â€ť
When quizzed over a return to his home country, the South African, who started his career at Ajax Cape Town, said: â€śItâ€™s not something that I have really thought about, so I will see what the future holds.â€ť
Pienaar admits he was shocked to see former Goodison Park manager David Moyes sacked by Manchester United after less than a season in charge.
â€śI was very surprised,â€ť he added. â€śHe needed more time to implement his ideas.
â€śItâ€™s the nature of the game these days, there is little time for managers at football teams now, they have to hit the ground running.â€ť
