Everton

Silva questions Big Sam comments

7th January 2019, 09:39 by Alex Jack

Everton manager Marco Silva has dismissed comments made by former Toffees boss Sam Allardyce about his footballing philosophy.

Former England boss Allardyce recently told talkSPORT that he questioned Silva's approach and urged the Portuguese tactician to adopt a more direct style in a bid to get positive results.

These comments have not sat well with the current man in the Goodison Park hot seat and Silva says he has no plans to be influenced by his predecessor on Merseyside.

He said: "I am not here to make comments about him. You have to look at whether these people love Everton, if they want Everton really winning, if they want some stability inside the club?

"If there are real Everton fans talking like that, then maybe we have to be aware and to look at it, but if some people don’t want good results, just instability within our club, they are not worth listening to.

"If it is David Moyes, maybe I would listen because he did something really important at this club."
