Marco Silva will reportedly get three games to try save his position as Everton manager – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are furious with the speculation.
The Daily Star reports that the Everton senior man will have the next three matches after the international break to prove he should stay in charge at Goodison Park.
It’s explained that the Toffees do not yet have a shortlist in place of potential replacements and are willing to give the Portuguese ace one last crack to get them out of a tricky situation.
The Merseyside club sit 18th in the Premier League table after eight rounds of fixtures and have not made the most of a decent run on paper.
Everton were hopeful of pushing for the European places, but right now they look closer to being in a relegation fight.
Silva’s three games to save his job starts at home to West Ham on 19 October and his team did beat them during a meeting in March.
They then travel to Brighton for another league encounter, before hosting Watford in the Carabao Cup.
A selection of Everton supporters on social media already feel that Silva has had enough time in charge and that he should be dismissed now during the international break.
His team finished eighth in the league table last season during his first year in charge and it doesn’t look like much progress is being made.
Here are some Everton fans frustrated that Silva is set for one last chance:
So in true Everton fashion…NO PLAN B

He’s punching above his weight like a few players. His record is appalling. Time to say good bye 👋🏻

i literally dont understand this. next week will be the same 4231, we will most likely draw and lose. why not get goodison rocking again by using this break to get in a quality manager rather than wait for us to lose more games. we could still get europe if we change now imo.

So were just gonna wait till we are bottom of the league before we get rid.

He has shown that he can’t change, fire him already.

Surely not.. If we lose to west ham at home, that has to be it. Looking at the games we’ve had at the start of this season we should be looking up not down. If this is true then ganes against West Ham Brighton and Watford.. Should be winning all 3, if not then sack.
