Marco Silva has reportedly been told he has the next three matches to save his Everton job
Everton’s slump has seen them fall into the relegation zone, with just seven points so far
Times are bad for the Toffees, and now David Moyes has been linked with a return
Everton manager Marco Silva has reportedly been told he has the next three matches to save his job on Merseyside.
The Portuguese manager has endured a nightmare start to the season with the Toffees, taking just two victories from eight matches played.
Everton, at this early point in the season, find themselves in the relegation zone and Silva has been told time is running out, according to the Star.
It is reported Silva believed he would be sacked during the international break, following Everton’s lacklustre defeat by Burnley.
Crisis talks are said to have taken place at Goodison, during which Silva was informed the results of the next three games would have large bearing on his future.
As Premier League football returns, Everton will host West Ham on Merseyside before traveling south to face Brighton.
The third fixture will see the Toffees come up against Silva’s former club Watford in the Carabao Cup.
Everton still have bad blood with the north London side following their dogged pursuit to bring him to Merseyside as manager.
Watford reported Everton’s conduct in trying to acquire Silva’s services, and a £4million settlement ended up exchanging hands to avoid a Premier League inquiry.
A cruel twist of fate could see the Hornets as the club to bring an end to Silva’s Everton tenure, and plunge the Toffees into a mid-season crisis.
As Everton’s woes continue, the club have been linked with former manager David Moyes, who left Goodison in 2013 to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
The Scot, who spent 11 years at Goodison before leaving for United, is currently out of work after departing West Ham in 2018.
However, he is now the heavy favourite for the Everton hotseat, with the odds dropping from 7/4 to 5/6 with bookmaker Paddy Power on Tuesday.
