Everton fans speculate about Silva replacing Allardyce

The managerial merry-go-round has become a common aspect of football, with many coaches struggling to make a year at their respective clubs.

At the weekend, Watford dismissed head coach Marco Silva after just eight months in charge, and it appears that Everton had something to do with it.

In a statement released via the Hornets’ official website, the club blamed an “unwarranted approach” from a Premier League outfit for Silva’s run of poor form, which included one win in 11 top-flight matches.

BBC Sport claims that Everton were the unnamed club who tried to snatch the Portuguese coach from Vicarage Road in November when they were hunting for Ronald Koeman’s successor.

In the end, the Merseyside outfit hired Sam Allardyce, who signed a contract until the end of next season.

Following news of Silva’s departure from Watford, Everton fans are now debating whether or not the former Hull City boss will find his way to Goodison Park at some stage.

Everton have failed to win in their last six league matches, but they remain ninth in the standings.
