Mills told Football Insider: “Marco Silva, getting the vote of confidence for the weekend, that’s ominous. When a club has to come out and it’s breaking news: ‘Marco Silva will be in charge for the next game,’ er, what about the games after that? 

“Everton’s a big decision. They’ve tried a few different managers in recent times. The structure of the club is good, there’s maybe a little bit of discourse over who’s going to be the next manager if they do get rid of Marco Silva and what direction that is going to take them in.

“They thought that manager was going to be Marco Silva.” 

Moyes took charge of 516 games during his spell as Everton manager, leaving Goodison Park in 2013 to take charge of Manchester United.

The 56-year-old has since managed at Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham, the Scotsman in east London between November 2017 and May 2018.
