Everton Announce Marco Silva as New Manager

Problem Position

Everton see the Portuguese man’s position as a long-term one. Everton owner Farhad Moshiri intends on having the former Watford boss at the club for at least five years. This will coincide with Everton’s proposed plan to move to a new stadium.

Everton have a history with Silva as he was chosen to replace Ronald Koeman in October. However, Watford accused the Toffees of tapping up their then boss.

After failing to secure him in November, Everton decided to go with Sam Allardyce. Unfortunately for ‘Big Sam’, things didn’t work out for him at Goodison.

Allardyce definitely escaped relegation, however, he bored the Everton fans in the process. His style of football was not met with enthusiasm at Goodison Park.

Consequentially, Allardyce received much criticism due to how he set his team up.

Furthermore, Silva will look to do a better job than Koeman and Allardyce when he takes charge at Goodison.


The Portuguese manager was a shock name when he came to England. He was appointed Hull boss in the 2016/2017 season following the departure of Mike Phelan.

Comically, Silva was met with criticism from Paul Merson. Merson criticised Hull City for appointing a foreign manager. He felt that English managers were being overlooked for such jobs.

However, Merson was completely ignorant to Silva’s success. In June 2011, Silva took charge of Portuguese club Estoril. The club were in the Portuguese second tier for seven years. Silva managed to return them to the top flight. Doing this he also picked up the league’s manager of the year.

Furthermore, Estoril finished their first season back at the top in their best ever 5th place. Making a name for himself with Estoril, he moved onto bigger clubs such as Sporting Lisbon and Greek side Olympiacos.

Silva narrowly missed out on keeping Hull up. However, his efforts caught the attention of Watford. Now he ends up at his third English club.
