According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, discussions are taking place at Everton that could see Tim Cahill return to Goodison Park as David Moyes’s assistant manager.
Marco Silva appears to be heading for the exit. The Liverpool Echo reports that the Portuguese was braced for the sack in the hours following their Merseyside derby defeat at Anfield.
However, Farhad Moshiri has reportedly decided to delay a decision on Silva’s future until Thursday. Nevertheless, it appears that the club are making plans for Moyes’s return.
According to the Liverpool Echo, discussions are being held regarding Cahill making a return to the club as Moyes’s right-hand man.
With Everton fans seemingly underwhelmed about the prospect of Moyes’s potential return, Cahill coming in could be a smart move. The 39-year-old was a fantastic servant for the Toffees, and will probably have a good idea of how to help get Moyes’s ideas across.
Of course, Cahill’s lack of coaching experience may leave some sceptical if he does arrive. Everton are now in the relegation zone, and some of the sides around them are finding form.
It is also a daunting run of games ahead for the Toffees. So you could understand if some supporters were actually disappointed about Cahill taking such a prominent role.
