Former Watford manager, Marco Silva has finally agreed to be replacing Everton former manager Sam Allardyce this summer.
Reports states that Silva was the first choice of Everton CEO Farhad Moshiri, with the new director of football, Marcel Brands taking over the decision to hire the former Hull City coach following the departure of Sam Allardyce.
Former manager, Allardyce led the Merseysiders club to the eight position in the Premier League but the Evertonians (Everton supporters) mostly claimed his football tactics were poor.
But is Silva the right man for the job:
The 40-year-old manager, has managed several team during his managerial career, being head coach for two Portuguese team, Estoril and Sporting CP which saw him move to the Greece to manage Olympiacos winning the Superleague during his time.
Silva then moved to England to manage a relegation-bound club Hull City back in January 2017, but was unable to help the club avoid relegation which saw him resigned from the club the same year May 25.
Two days later Marco Silva was picked by Watford to manage the club, and following his impressive stats to the start of the new campaign, Everton were said to have approached the Portugues coach in an unwanted manner, which later caused his dismissal from the Vicarage Road during the January transfer window this year.
Speaking to Everton’s Official website, Silva said: “I am really happy to be here – to be the new Everton manager.
“I’m proud and I know the responsibility I have. I know what you expect from me, my staff and our team. We are ready for this challenge.”
“I know the huge history of Everton as a club and what the fans expect. I’m sure with everybody working together I will be ready for this challenge.”
“We have a lot of work to do in this next month and it is important to prepare everything in the right way. But there will be even more important work to do from the start of pre-season into the first Premier League match of next season.”
