Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has given some advice to Watford manager Marco Silva, suggesting the Hornets boss rejects the opportunity to move to Goodison Park.
He claims that if he drops sticks at Watford when the ‘first big job’ comes along, it will have a negative impact on his career.
Reports have recently claimed that Watford turned down an approach from Everton for their manager.
Speaking on talkSPORT’s Kick-Off show, Jordan was of the opinion that Silva should stay with his current club.
He said “I think he’s gone into Watford and he is doing a decent job there. It’s tempting for him.
“If he’s got any proper advisors around him and thinking of his own, he will know that managerial careers are built around upon a degree of integrity and reliability.
“Dropping out of the Watford job at such an early tenure when the first big job comes along will not do him any favours in the long run.”
Silva has been earmarked by the Toffeemen to take over at Goodison after a fine start to the season with Watford, they currently sit in ninth place in the Premier League.
He is currently the favourite for the job with SkyBet at evens.
