Barry discusses the Man City game and his future

    Gareth Barry continued his EvertonTV interview this week by discussing the visit of his parent club Manchester City’s visit to Goodison Park in May.

    The midfielder is ineligible for the game which could at that stage be crucial to Everton’s hopes of European football.

    “I’m not looking forward to that game coming along to be honest, in terms of my position. I just hope at that stage that we are still in with a shout of qualifying for the Champions League”.

    “At home we can beat the best, and Man City are certainly that” he continued. “I think it will be clear in my situation. I’m out of contract this summer, I’m playing and working for Everton and I’m all about Everton and so I’ll be hoping, as difficult as it is to say, that Everton pick up the 3 points if that means qualifying for the Champions League.”

    Pushed on his future, Barry maintained the stance he and his manager Martinez has taken all season.

    “I’ve not really thought about it to be honest. I think the manager has been clear about it from day one, that I just need to focus on my football and make sure I enjoy it. That’s what I need to do. Sometimes for professional footballers it comes into your mind and makes it difficult to concentrate of the pitch, so I’m just hoping to get to the end of the season and hopefully being successful with it.”

    “I’m 33 now, it will probably be my final contract, so I’m going to make sure it’s a correct one”.

    “I’ve really enjoyed my time at Everton, I certainly won’t be looking back and regretting my decision to come and play here. I really have enjoyed working here at this fantastic football club and if it can be successful, that’s even better.”
