Feisty affair on the cards at Vicarage Road
Everton boss Marco Silva has admitted that he’s ‘ready’ for a hostile return to Vicarage Road after leaving Watford on bad terms.
Silva was sacked by Watford after supposedly having his head turned by an approach from Everton.
The Toffees had just sacked Ronald Koeman and were looking for a new boss to take over.
However, Watford were not willing to let go of Silva midway through the season having impressed early on in the campaign.
Though, Watford would then sack Silva just a few months later, citing an ‘unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival’ for the clubs downturn in form.
The Portuguese boss would then bide his time until the season ended when Everton appointed him.
Meanwhile, Watford would go on to appoint Javi Gracia who has impressed with the Hornets.
Now, with Everton travelling to Vicarage Road on Saturday, Silva claims he’s ‘ready’ for a hostile reception.
“I am ready for everything”
While Silva didn’t want to get drawn into questions on his Watford sacking, he would talk about the reception.
He claimed that he is ‘ready for everything’ ahead of the game which he needs to win to take the pressure off his position.
“I think it is not the time to make or to do reflection on last season,” he explained, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“We are in the middle of a season. It is not the moment to talk about the situation.
“Watford will be a tough game. The reception? In football, you have to be ready for everything. I am ready for everything.”
