Former Hull City and Watford boss Marco Silva has been appointed as the new Everton manager.
Marco Silva has signed a three-year deal with the Toffees as replacement for Sam Allardyce who left the club at the end of the season after less than six months in charge at Goodison Park.
The Merseyside giants have finally gotten their man after Watford rejected their overtures last season prompting the club to settle for the aforementioned Allardyce.
The coast thereafter became clearer for Everton to finally get their hands on Silva after he was sacked by the Hornets.
On his appointment as the new Everton manager, Marco Silva said: “I’m really proud to be the new Everton manager.”
“I’m excited and I’m really happy to take this big challenge for us as a club and for me as a manager.
“I want to express my thanks to Farhad [Moshiri], to the Chairman, to the Board of Directors and to Marcel [Brands] as well for the confidence in my work.
“I know the huge history of Everton as a club and what the fans expect. I’m sure with everybody working together I will be ready for this challenge.” he concluded.
Marco Silva will hold his first press conference as the new Everton boss on Monday.
