Everton next manager: Marco Silva refuses to commit future to Watford


Claims Everton have had a £10m offer for Silva rejected by Watford are covered, and A Bola make a point of saying the manager himself would be on much better financial terms at Goodison Park.

With no replacement for the Dutchman since he was deposed three weeks ago, the Everton hierarchy have turned to Silva as a viable successor.

He remarked: "I don't answer this question because I read many things during the week". I understand everyone wants to talk about this situation but Everton is not the club where I work.

Silva signed a two-year deal at Vicarage Road back in the summer after demonstrating his abilities at Hull City, where he drastically improved the Tigers results, but ultimately couldn't keep them in the Premier League last season.

"This is the moment for the owners to talk to each other about the situation. Communication is fine. If it's me, wonderful, if not I'll shake the hand of whoever it is".

The Hornets face West Ham in their first match since the appointment of former Everton manager David Moyes, and take on the Hammers on the back of three consecutive defeats leading up to the worldwide break.

Silva refused to douse any speculation after that one but insisted his future had barely been talked about by his players.

'I will say now what I will say tomorrow and on Sunday. I don't want to talk really about Everton.

"I look at this situation like when a player performs well, and (another club) tries to approach the owner or club". I do my job normally, and have since I've come here. It's a big club, nothing more. "For me it is a normal situation".

Watford have lost their last three matches - and the most recent was at Everton.
