New Everton FC manager targeting big name signings
Marco Silva looking to bolster squad with quality signings after replacing Sam Allardyce
June 4th, 2018
Everton supporters are excited about the 2018/19 season, with Marco Silva being recruited by the Merseyside club who are determined to make a managerial appointment stick following the relatively short reigns of Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.
The Portuguese took his first press conference at the club on Monday, with the former Hull manager outlining some “big name signings” and also leaving the door open for Wayne Rooney.
The former Watford manager said: “It is easy to understand the culture and identity. I know what the fans expect to see every time.
“I don’t want to compare nothing. Now is the moment to prove again, it is a big challenge for us. To win matches you need to create chances and score.
“I have big names. The list is not so big. We will do everything we can to improve. I like to see competition between players every day.”
Director of football Marcel Brands said: “We do it together. I worked with a lot of good coaches, with LVG (Louis van Gaal), with Ronald Koeman, Phillip Cocu and we didn’t have one player we didn’t agree on.”
