Heitinga unhappy with Moyes over Everton snub

The Dutchman is irritated at being left on the bench for each of the Toffees' matches this season but aims to work his way back into the side after leaving for international duty
Everton defender John Heitinga has hit out at his manager David Moyes for leaving him on the bench for their 2-0 defeat to West Brom on Saturday.

The Dutch centre-back has yet to start a game for the club this season despite being named the Toffees' Player of the Season last year.

And he has criticised Moyes for his failure to name him in the starting line-up after his side's poor display at the Hawthorns.

Heitinga told the Daily Mail: "I've felt better reporting for international duty. The Everton boss' decisions feel bad.

"It's a bullet I must bite every year. I was also left out for most of our early games in the two previous seasons.

"But I was soon in the side. I don't expect to wait long to get into the starting line-up."
