Patrick van Aanholt has explained his decision to force through a January move from Sunderland to Crystal Palace.
“I did not enjoy David Moyes’ training sessions,” he said, as quoted byThe Sun. “Eventually I lost my love for the game, and went into the dressing-room feeling annoyed every day.
“When Sunderland turned down an offer for me from Crystal Palace I went to see Moyes in his office three or four times.
“I was angry. I told him: ‘Accept Palace’s bid and just let me leave – it is the best thing for all concerned.’ But he said that he wanted to keep hold of me.”
