Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard says he has nothing to prove as he embarks on a season away from Manchester United.

The United States international has joined The Toffees on a season-long loan this term after being pushed down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Howard is keen to re-establish himself in England after falling out of favour under Sir Alex Ferguson, but has nothing detrimental to say about the Scot.

The 27-year-old just wants to put his recent United disappointment behind him and make the most of his Everton chance.

"I hate to rely on a sports cliche, but I'm not looking to prove anything," said Howard.

"I think I have proven myself. And, as an athlete, you want to continue to prove yourself.

"Ferguson didn't treat me exceptionally bad or anything. In fact, I have nothing but good things to say about him.

"For me, it's just about looking forward to this year and seeing how this goes and putting everything I have into this year."
