Marco Silva sacked as Everton manager

Marco Silva sacked as Everton manager

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas expects managerless Everton to stun Chelsea at Goodison Park this weekend following the sacking of Marco Silva.

Silva reported for a regular day's work at Everton's training ground on Thursday, a day after suffering a 5-2 defeat to local rivals Liverpool, all while a conference call was expected to take place involving the relevant figures: owner Farhad Moshiri, chairman Bill Kenright, chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale and director of football Marcel Brands.

Marco Silva's immediate replacement may be a temporary one, but it will be one that should give Everton a much-needed lift. The club said in a statement that it "aims to confirm a new permanent manager as swiftly as possible". Everton conceded four goals in the first half and could easily have lost by a heavier margin despite Liverpool fielding a weakened lineup.

Moyes spent 11 years at Everton before accepting a deal with Manchester United to become Sir Alex Ferguson's successor in 2013.

Grassley: I Would Advise Trump Not to Testify at Senate Impeachment Trial
The White House has sent emissaries to Congress to bolster what had been a solid wall of support for Trump among Republicans. Republican lawmakers have been derisive of the inquiry, calling it a sham and a Democrat plot to oust Trump .

Former manager David Moyes has been linked with a return to the club.

Moyes then attempted to salvage Sunderland's Premier League credentials but failed as the Black Cats were relegated in 2017.

The 42-year-old's failure to bring success to Goodison will have disappointed Moshiri who found himself in a bitter row with Watford to gain the services of the Portuguese.

After all, the Toffees are in the Premier League bottom three, and Ancelotti will not like the prospect of taking charge of a team who are really struggling and could go down to the Championship at the end of the season. Former striker Ferguson, a long-time member of the Everton coaching staff under various managers, is not viewed as a major contender for the top job.
