Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has credited Marco Silva with bringing a feel-good factor to Goodison Park.
Toffees manager Silva has guided the club to seventh in the Premier League table since his summer appointment as he prepares to welcome former side Watford to Goodison tonight.
Iceland international Sigurdsson feels Everton are going in the right direction under their new coach and is excited by what the future holds for the club.
“I think if you ask any of the players, they are enjoying working with the new manager,” the 29-year-old told the club website. “He wants us to play attacking football, to work hard without the ball and press. “There is a good understanding within the players.”
Silva brought six new outfield players to Merseyside during the summer. Brazilian duo Richarlison and Bernard were joined by commanding centre-backs Kurt Zouma and Yerry Mina, as well as left-back Lucas Digne and Portugal midfielder Andre Gomes.
Sigurdsson, the club’s record signing, feels the arrivals have injected speed and creativity into the team. “The new players have been fantastic. They have helped us score lot of goals, with a lot of creativity going forward and speed,” he added.
“I think all the players who have come in – not just the attacking players, the centre-halves and Lucas as well – have been fantastic and fitted in really well. “They suit the way the manager wants us to play.
It feels natural playing with the guys now and that comes with the work we’ve been doing on the training pitch.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
