Moyes happy with Saha outburst

Everton manager David Moyes has no problems with Louis Saha after the striker reacted angrily to being left out of the squad for the 3-1 win against Wigan.

Saha, who has played just 41 minutes this season in two substitute appearances, vented his frustration on Twitter, saying: "I am not good enough. Absolutely destroyed. It's coz I'm confident in my ability that I'm gutted."

Asked about the player's comments Moyes said: "It's good that, great. I want them upset when they are not involved."

It is understood Saha left the ground soon after discovering he was not in the squad.

"Everybody reports for the game and we tell them the subs, because they knew the team," added the Everton boss.

"I'm not really that bothered. I was interested in the 11 players I was concentrating on and that is what everyone should have been concentrating on."

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez felt his side warranted a point from the game after the Toffees scored two late goals through Apostolos Vellios and Royston Drenthe.

"It is one of those days where you don't get the result you deserved," said the Spaniard.

"Ninety percent of our performance was exactly what we wanted and that little 10% was not to stop two crosses, one in the first half and one in the second.

"I feel we got heavily punished feel if we had played this game 10 times we would have got something out of it in nine of them."
