Everton have reportedly put Marco Silva amongst their top targets to replace Sam Allardyce at Goodison Park this summer but ex-Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has ripped into the Portuguese, branding him a “slob.”
Writing on his official Twitter feed, the occasional talkSPORT co-host was not backwards in coming forwards after reacting to the news of Big Sam’s dismissal and hearing that the 40-year-old was in line to replace the ex-England boss.
Writing on the social media platform Jordan said: “Football is great
#Marcosilva reward for failing at the business end of the season with #hullcityfc and being a typical disingenuous,disloyal slob at #watfordfc is to get a big Job at #efc … maybe they will reap what they sow.”

Football Insider verdict:
Wow. Say what you really think Mr Jordan but to be fair, he does have a point. Silva did an admirable job at Hull City, coming very close to keeping them in the Premier League when they had looked doomed. However, he didn’t. Nonetheless, he was handed another opportunity to prove himself in the Premier League and after guiding the Hornets to a fine start to the season, it was no surprise when Everton came knocking after the Blues sacked Koeman. But as he was barely six months into his contract at Vicarage Road, Silva ought to have turned away their advances. In the end, his lack of loyalty to Watford saw his side dip in form, a result of which ultimately cost the 40-year-old his job. They may be harsh words from Jordan and not ones we would not have selected to describe Silva, but short spells with Hull and then the Hornets would tend to suggest that he never hangs around anywhere for long – and the same might be said for Everton should he end up there.
