Watford have reportedly rejected an approach from Everton for their highly-rated manager Marco Silva – and fans of the Hertfordshire club have taken to Twitter to deliver mixed verdicts.

Silva had initially been thought to be keen on staying at Vicarage Road and showing loyalty to the club who brought him back to the Premier League after old club Hull’s relegation.

But it now seems as though the Portuguese is keen to move on to a bigger Premier League rival, with Everton keen to secure his services, but the Hornets want to keep their talented boss.

Portuguese Silva arrived on these shores as a relative unknown, but he had already found great success with Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos.

The 40-year-old was appointed Hull manager in January, charged with keeping the Tigers in the Premier League.

Despite failing to do so, Silva’s side impressed with four wins in their first four home games, managing six wins in total from their last 18 games, but it was not enough to save them from the drop.

Watford fans have reacted on Twitter to this latest development in Everton’s manager search, with opinions divided at Silva’s apparent interest in the Toffees job.
