David Moyes

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher doesn’t think Everton fans would be open to bringing back David Moyes as manager.

Marco Silva is coming under increasing pressure after the Toffees lost 2-0 at home to Norwich City on Saturday, meaning they have now lost to all three newly-promoted sides this season.

Former boss Moyes has been linked with a return to Goodison Park along with other names that include Rafa Benitez and Mark Hughes – but Carragher doesn’t think Everton fans view Moyes as the answer.

“I’ve spoken to a lot of Everton fans, I’ve got a few in the family, everyone you mention, they say no,” Carragher said (quotes via the Daily Express).

“There’s talk of David Moyes coming back in a Big Sam role, trying to keep them up, they’re so against that you would not believe.

“I can’t believe that considering the job he did there, but it’s like they’re judging David Moyes on the job he did at Everton.”

Everton’s next five Premier League fixtures are against Leicester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal – but Carragher thinks they are the only reason Silva is still holding onto his job.

Carragher added: “The tough run of games is keeping him in the job. Last year, he had a good run in tough fixtures.

“But also, if you were bringing a new manager into the job, you wouldn’t want to give him that to start with.

“I think Marco Silva will have the Leicester game and the Liverpool game [to save his job].

“We know how significant the Liverpool game is for everyone at Everton, and if that goes badly I fail to see how they move on from that.”
