Everton: Supporters slam Marco Silva’s post-match comments

Image for Everton: Supporters slam Marco Silva’s post-match comments

Everton supporters slammed Marco Silva’s post-match comments as ‘delusional’ following the 2-1 defeat to Leicester City.

The Toffees were handed a hammer blow in the narrow defeat to the high-flying Foxes, with a 94th-minute winner downing the Goodison Park club (as per The Guardian).

However, following the game, Everton’s Portuguese gaffer was still full of praise for his side and branded the Toffees the best side “for 60-65 minutes” (via Phil Kirkbride).

Despite the manager grabbing at positives, many of the supporters slammed the 42-year-old’s comments as they believed them to be untrue.

Were Everton the better side for 60-65 minutes?

Yes, Silva was right

Following the Goodison Park club’s latest defeat, the pressure on Silva’s job makes a sacking in the near future look inevitable (as per The Telegraph).

There is even some speculation that the decision has already been made, and the 42-year-old is just lying in wait of replacement being found (as per Daily Express).

However, judging from his latest comments, the club’s manager is still trying to remain positive – a vision that Everton fans just could not see.

What do we think?

This season, Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester are a fantastic side, and to get any result requires a full game’s worth of being the better performer.

Whether the Toffees were or were not the better side for 60-65 minutes, it is irrelevant if they did not achieve a result, however harsh the final outcome was.
