Everton boss Moyes: Jagielka injury affected us all badly

Everton boss David Moyes admits Phil Jagielka's knee injury hit the defender hard.

"It was a terrible injury and a tragedy for the boy," Moyes said. "It affected us all badly. If there was one person who didn't deserve to miss the Cup final it would be Jagielka.

"It was tough on him, the boy was really upset and rightly so. He's played a big part at Everton this season and to miss out is really disappointing for him.

"The operation went well, he got it done really quickly, we think he's a quick healer and look forward to getting him back. He's on the mend now and he'll be getting ready to start again now."
