Cape Town - David Moyes has revealed the hurt he felt upon returning to Everton, whilst in charge of Manchester United last season.

Moyes, who spent 11 years in charge at the Toffees, was booed loudly by the Goodison Park crowd and to make matters worse, his new side lost 2-0 that day to his former side.

The loss for Moyes and Manchester United that day ended any hope of the Red Devils making the Champions League for the 2014/15 season and Moyes was sacked by the club shortly thereafter.

fourfourtwo report that Moyes has shed light on his disappointment at his treatment by the Merseyside crowd.

"I wasn't surprised, because I know how supporters react and I had left their club. But I was disappointed." said Moyes.

"I got Everton competing at the top end of the league with a mid-table budget. I gave everything I could in trying to make Everton the best I could. It was a long process but we did it - my staff, my players and others at the club.

"We had some glorious nights at Goodison and the fans were superb. I've got huge affection for Everton, it was my life for over a decade."
