Marco Silva reportedly feared for his job after a meeting with the board of directors yesterday but it appears the Everton boss is likely to get one more chance to save his job.
Everton put in a limp display in a 2-0 defeat against Norwich City at Goodison Park yesterday which had the fans on Merseyside calling for Silva’s head.
It seems an almost unanimous opinion among the Everton fanbase at present that Silva should be given the boot.
It seems that the Portuguese coach felt the same. According to The Telegraph, The Everton boss ‘feared he was in danger’ of the sack after the game – especially when meeting with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, chairman Bill Kenwright, chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale and director of football Marcel Brands.
However, despite David Moyes’ return being reported as ‘a serious option’ Everton are likely to give Silva another week to try and turn things around.
The danger is that Everton’s next game is against high-flying Leicester City and if Everton perform in the same way they did yesterday, the Foxes will fancy a repeat of their recent humiliation of Southampton.
At present, it would surely take something almost miraculous for Silva to turn things around at Everton after yet another insipid display in front of the home faithful.
