Everton fans fume as Davies is made captain

Everton boss Marco Silva named Tom Davies as captain for Wednesday’s EFL Cup clash with Rotherham United.

Davies will not turn 21 until next June, but was handed the armband for the League Cup match at Goodison Park, which would have been a huge honour.

The midfielder came through the youth system at Everton, and has made 72 first-team appearances for the Merseyside outfit – including two in the Premier League this term.

It would be fair to say that a number of Everton fans are still unconvinced when it comes to Davies, however, and that was again made clear on Wednesday night.

Indeed, upon hearing the news that Davies would wear the armband against Rotherham, there were Everton fans who took to social media to reveal their disappointment.

One of the club’s supporters claimed that it was ‘another ridiculous decision’ from head coach Marco Silva, who also selected Sandro Ramirez in the XI despite reports linking the Spaniard with a move to Real Sociedad.
