Loads of Everton fans have been slamming the Merseyside club’s former boss Marco Silva as he is reportedly the favourite to take over at Benfica from current coach Bruno Lage, who is set to leave the Portuguese outfit, according to A Bola, Record and O Jogo (via Sport Witness).
As per the outlet, all of the newspapers in Portugal have been saying that Lage should soon leave Benfica, whether it would be now or if he was to be sacked at the end of the 2019/20 season following some recently poor results.
Since the restart following the global pandemic outbreak, the Portuguese giants have only won one game out of four, drawing two and losing their most recent match at home 4-3 against Santa Clara, leaving them three points behind FC Porto in the race for the Primeira Liga title.
Indeed, Silva is being lined up, but several members of the Goodison Park faithful remember the relatively poor time he had managing the Toffees.
Is Marco Silva the worst manager Everton have ever had?
