Everton boss Marco Silva: No ultimatum on my future
Marco Silva insists he’s never been given an ultimatum in his Everton future and says that he doesn’t waste time considering it.
Speculation was mounting about the long run of Silva after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at home to Norwich, and the Everton manager spoke with the board and majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri.
Graffiti calling to be sacked appeared on the outside of a few of those stands at Goodison Park on Monday night, and also segments of their house support vocalised that feeling on Saturday as loud boos rang round the stadium.
However, speaking ahead of his side’s trip live on Sky Sports, Silva insists that he doesn’t waste his time wondering whether he’ll lose his job.
“I don’t waste my time or my focus thinking about that situation,” he explained. “My focus is always on my own players and that which I could control.
“The next game is always what is in my mind and analysing, obviously, why we didn’t perform and why we didn’t achieve the result we wanted and needed. I do not lose one moment thinking about this situation.
“It is not a part of my day to see or read [speculation]. I know something about the rumours but they are not in my everyday routine.”
Everton sit 16th at the table with just two wins in the previous nine games and face Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal in the Premier League following their clash against Leicester.
Despite their bad run of form manager of football Marcel Brands gave a vote of confidence to Silva and states everybody is working and united together to turn results around.
“We had a conversation on Saturday, again on Monday. My signature is permanent using Marcel,” Silva said. “Contact each and every day.
“It is very important for me to comprehend why we haven’t achieved the results and like normal the board wishes to speak with me on my opinion about the circumstance.
“There was never talks of a ultimatum or even thinking about winning the next game to keep my job.”
In case Silva does lose his own job, Sky Sports News understands Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe and former Toffees manager David Moyes are to replace him.
