Ross Barkley praises Everton boss David Moyes
Tuesday 13 December 2011
Everton youngster Ross Barkley believes manager David Moyes is the ideal man to get the best out of him.
The 18-year-old, who is expected to sign a new long-term contract this week, made his Barclays Premier League debut in the Toffees' opening defeat of the season at home to QPR.
Barkley is very highly rated by both the coaching staff and his team-mates and although the player is desperate for more first-team involvement, he accepts he will have to be patient.
Moyes has never been reluctant to give younger players a chance, having brought through the likes of Wayne Rooney and Jack Rodwell.
"It can be [frustrating] because I want to play all the time but I fully understand because I am still only very young and the manager knows what he's doing and what's best for me," Barkley told Evertonian magazine.
"He's had young players coming through before. That's what's great about Everton; the manager will always give young players the chance to play at the right time.
"I think I'll play in the FA Youth Cup this season, which will be useful."
