Scot happy to remain at Goodison Park for a while longer

Everton boss David Moyes admits that his desire is to win "a couple of trophies" with the Toffees after he took charge of his 400th game as manager of the club against Chelsea last week.

Since his move from Preston in 2002, Moyes has turned the club from relegation battlers to challengers for a place in Europe but the Scot admits he is desperate to win some silverware at Goodison Park.

"I have been very lucky and fortunate that I have been working with a very good board at Everton. I am thankful and in today's era it is quite an achievement," Moyes told the club’s official website.

"I am not one for statistics, what I really want is a couple of trophies.

"I was accepted from the first day and hopefully over the piece we haven't disappointed them too many times.

"My mind is on the next game, the one that's coming. After you finish you look back and talk about them. When you are managing there isn't time to look back."

Only Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger and Accrington Stanley's John Coleman have lasted longer in their current role, but with 400 games already under his belt, Moyes is hoping to at least double that figure.

"If life is good to me and Everton is good to me and I feel I am still up for it and the supporters want me then I'll be happy to do 400 more," Moyes continued.

"I don't want to be looking back, I want us to talk about new challenges, new European games. I want us to be looking at what's coming next."
