Moyes: I owed it to Arteta to sell him to Arsenal

Mikel ArtetaDavid Moyes says he owed it to Mikel Arteta to sell him to Arsenal on the last day of the transfer window.

The manager insists that the decision to sell Arteta was not that of the Chairman, or the banks, but his and his alone, citing a lack of Champions League football at Everton for Arteta’s agreement to a move.

“Let’s be clear about Mikel,” Moyes says. “I make the decisions here, so it was my decision that the player went. It wasn’t the chairman telling me I have to sell the player or anything like that. Mikel wanted to go and we had turned down a chance to sell him last year.

“I didn’t sell him last year and said to him that I would get him a team that would challenge for the Champions League. We didn’t do that and I owed it to him to give him the opportunity to play in the Champions League.”
