Revealed: Majority of Everton fans expect Silva to become new manager

The writing was on the wall with regards to Sam Allardyce’s future at Everton as soon as fans began criticising the experienced coach regarding style of play.

At the end of the season, the former England boss was shown the door at Goodison Park, and now the Toffees are on the hunt for their new leader.

Former Hull City and Watford boss Marco Silva, who has won a league title in Portugal and Greece as a coach, became an early front-runner for the position.

However, a snag emerged at the weekend when Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Udinese had placed Silva on their shortlist of candidates.

Everton’s interest in the Portuguese coach has seemingly been evident for some time, but given that they are yet to get their man, we asked you whether a deal would go through.

The majority feel that it is only a matter of time before Silva becomes the new boss at Goodison Park.

Despite the lacklustre performances under Allardyce, the club still managed to finish eighth in the Premier League table.
