Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that ex-Hull City manager Marco Silva should replace Ronald Koeman at Everton, according to team talk.
Carragher, who is currently working as a pundit at Sky, believes that Watford manager Marco Silva will be an ideal replacement for Ronald Koeman after the Dutchman was sacked earlier this week following an abysmal start to season.
Silva had impressed during his time at Hull last season despite ultimately failing to save the Tigers from relegation last season and the 40-year-old has continued to raise his stock with Watford during the current Premier League.
The Portuguese manager has impressed many this season as well, with Watford playing with a fearless swagger and the Hornets are currently in sixth position in the league table following some memorable performances – especially during the victory against Arsenal recently.
Considering Silva’s influence since his move to Watford, Carragher believes that the Portuguese tactician will be a good replacement for Koeman.
Carragher wrote in the Telegraph, “Everton are now faced with two options. Replace Koeman immediately, which makes Sean Dyche look the most realistic target.
“Or, give Under-23 manager David Unsworth temporary charge, trust him to banish any relegation fears and wait until the end of the season to appoint full-time when there will be far more options available, which could bring a target like Marco Silva into the equation.
“My choice would be Silva, who in a short period at Hull and Watford has shown he has something about him. The kind of star quality Moshiri thought Koeman had nine league games ago.”
