Everton boss Moyes tribute to Kenwright: He lets me get on with it

Everton boss David Moyes has paid tribute to chairman Bill Kenwright.

Moyes believes the club, which has recovered from a dreadful start to the season when it was overwhelmed by injuries, is reaping the benefit from the solidity under chairman Kenwright.

Moyes has been in charge eight years and he said: "If you can give managers a chance to do their work and get on with it, I think it shows. With Brian Clough and Sir Bobby Robson and Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson they all got long, long periods at their clubs.

"I've got a really good chairman and people have been really supportive and yes there have been times when the team's not been doing so well but I've never at any time felt any threat, and that's the sign of a good chairman.

"He takes the pressure off the manager when there is any and he's let me get on with the job."
