Marco Silva's history suggests

It is easy to see why Everton identified Marco Silva as their ideal head coach last October but less easy to understand why they persisted in doing so after his time at Watford unravelled in off-pitch acrimony and on-pitch chaos. The manner in which his performance in Hertfordshire went from immaculate to inadequate must at the very least have made what might once have been a straightforward decision significantly more complicated.

Everton will believe they have the status to keep Silva’s ego satisfied for a bit longer than the two months and nine matches that separated his first game with the Hornets from the decision that he could do better. The coach’s history certainly suggests that what follows is likely to be fun as well as dramatic.
Silva turns 41 this summer and no coach goes inside seven years from allowing a mediocre playing career to drift to a conclusion at a mid-ranking Portuguese second division club to a third Premier League managerial appointment without having ambition.
He spoke of this when he signed a two-year contract at Vicarage Road last May. “They showed me the project and I like the ambition,” he said. “I’m excited. It’s a good challenge and I’m really happy. The club want to improve and this is what I try to fight for in my career as well – to always improve. The ambition this club has is really important to me.”
But almost immediately he demonstrated dissatisfaction with some elements of his role. While he was instrumental in the arrival of the Brazilian forward Richarlison and the club also brought in the winger André Carillo, who had worked with Silva at Sporting, the head coach had limited influence in player recruitment.
This did not stop him talking in public and at length about players he wanted to sign, with Leicester’s Islam Slimani, who excelled under Silva at Sporting, frequently mentioned. “Do I know the player? Of course I do. He worked with me three seasons ago. Do I like the player? Of course I like the player. Is he a player that could help us? I’m sure about that,” he said in August. “If I could control everything maybe I’d answer to you another way. In this moment I can’t control situations.”
Once the summer transfer window closed Watford were delighted with their recruitment, believing they had provided their coach with a significantly strengthened squad capable of finishing in the top half of the Premier League. They were then astonished when Silva strongly criticised their dealings in a press conference. “I expected something different,” he said. “I’m clear, last week was not the best for us in the market.”
This tallies with accounts of Silva’s time at Sporting, who sacked him Teppo Numminen Authentic Jersey in 2015, a few days after Tony Gonzalez Authentic Jersey he had led them to victory in Portugal’s domestic cup. One of the explanations given by the club was that he repeatedly used press conferences to air his unhappiness about issues which they felt had been settled in private.
A source at Sporting complained to the radio station TSF about Silva’s “provocative and disloyal attitude”. He swiftly joined Olympiakos, and set a new postwar European record by winning his first 17 league games – they won 28 of their 30 matches that season, which they ended 30 points clear of second-placed Panathinaikos. As a result of that success Porto attempted to sign him in May 2016; Olympiakos, who had tied him to a two-year contract, blocked the move and he abruptly resigned the following month.
So Everton should not expect long-term stability. What still attracts them to Silva is his record of coaching success, with the final weeks at Watford the only blot on a spectacularly bright landscape. At Estoril he took a club with few pretensions out of second-tier mediocrity and into Europe; at Sporting he won the cup, lost only two league matches and ended with a points tally that would have been enough to win the title in seven of the previous 10 seasons (but in 2014‑15 took them to only third place). wholesale nfl jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys
