Marcelo Bielsa TEAMtalk

Simon Jordan believes Marco Silva’s reputation is based on nothing and says Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa would be perfect for struggling Everton.

The former Crystal Palace owner and now talkSPORT pundit says Silva is on borrowed time at Everton after they slipped closer to the relegation zone on Sunday.

Everton have collected just two wins from their last 10 Premier League games and the 2-1 defeat at Leicester leaves them in 17th place, just two points above the bottom three.

And Jordan thinks Everton need to make a change and thinks Argentinian boss Bielsa, who has got Leeds top of the Championship with a terrific defensive record, would be ideal for the Merseysiders.

“You need to find the type of manager who is going to invigorate the squad, invigorate the board room and invigorate the fans,” Jordan told talkSPORT.

“You can see this in certain managers like clearly Jurgen Klopp and clearly Pep Guardiola and you can see it in Brendan Rodgers.

“There is no reason why Everton shouldn’t be able to attract an elite manager to come to the club.

“When you talk about Marcelo Bielsa managing Leeds, why wouldn’t he be managing a team like Everton?

“That’s the sort of appointment in terms of quality of thinking that would ultimately take Everton forward.

“It’s all about getting the next decision right because Everton are forever treading water.



“When you look at this Everton side, there’s a better tune that should be had from them.

“I’m not an admirer of Marco Silva. I think he’s somebody who has a reputation that doesn’t appear to be based on a lot.

“He did a decent job at Olympiakos, but Hull got relegated on his watch and Watford had a few decent games under him and all of a sudden he was the must-have manager!”
