Marco Silva looking to stay at Everton for the long-term

Not in it for a step up

Everton boss Marco Silva has explained that he is looking to stay at the Toffees in the long-term and build a new project.

The Portuguese boss has earned an unfortunate reputation for quitting on his clubs early.

He was sacked by Sporting CP following his first season, stayed at Olympiakos for one year before moving to Hull, staying there for one year.

He then joined Watford and looked to join the Toffees halfway through his first season before being sacked.

That isn’t a great reputation to have and that could be a concern for Everton fans if they started to do well.

Though, Marco Silva has moved to alleviate any fears over his future.

Looking for a long-term project

That is because he has claimed this week that he is ‘looking to build something’ at the Blues.

However, he knows that results straight away are important in the short-term.

“We should have taken more points than we have at this moment,” Silva explained to the Liverpool Echo. 

“When you’re at a club like Everton you want to be a part of the story. For me, that’s really important.

“Of course it’s a long-term project. I want to build something but at the end of the day the most important thing will be the results.

“In football it’s always like that but what you want to do in the future is to be part of this big story.”

Everton’s Richarlison confirms he’ll do the ‘pigeon dance’ if he scores for Brazil

Another big name signing for Everton in the summer was Richarlison.

The Brazilian followed Marco Silva from Watford to the Toffees and has made a brilliant start to the season.

Now, despite being suspended for a red card against Bournemouth, he’s been called up to the Brazil national team.

He’s even been speaking about his time there and more about his pigeon celebration!
