Phil Jagielka 'committed' to Everton despite David Moyes departure to Manchester United
Monday 27 May 2013
Phil Jagielka remains committed to Everton despite the departure of manager David Moyes.
Moyes' 11-year reign at Goodison Park came to an end earlier this month when he was chosen to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
There have been worries that a number of Everton players will follow Moyes out of the club, but Jagielka insists he will not be one of them.
When asked if he still saw his future at Everton, the England defender replied: "Yes, definitely.
"I was made captain for next season when David Moyes was in charge.
"We will have to wait and see what happens with the new manager, but hopefully he will keep me in that role and it is something that I am looking forward to doing."
