Silva Planning For “Long-Term” – Moshiri

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has reiterated his trust in Marco Silva and insists the Portuguese is planning for the “long-term”. Silva’s arrival over the summer came with plenty of hype after impressing during short stints with Hull and Watford in the Premier League.

Fans expected a huge improvement in performances after growing tired of Sam Allardyce’s negative approach in 2017-18.

But Silva has endured a testing first campaign at Goodison Park with the club sitting ninth after winning just three of their last 12 Premier League games, while they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Millwall last month.

However, despite their recent struggles, Moshiri insists he believes in Silva’s plan to develop youngsters and feels they will see the benefits in the “long-term”.

Moshiri told talkSPORT: “It is a project. The Everton fans quite rightly demand young football. “We want young players to develop – they need to play. Marco Silva is a talented coach but he’s planning long-term. “He will coach and develop those young players and every year those same young players will become stronger. “In this business, you have to hold your nerve.”
