Former Everton man Abel Xavier has praised the decision to bring in Marco Silva as manager during the summer.

The Portuguese defender was at Goodison Park until he decided to move to Liverpool and was well-known for his rather questionable hairstyles.

He thinks that Marco Silva’s appointment is going to prove a real positive for us, though, with him telling the official website:

“Evertonians will like Marco Silva’s thinking and I am certain he will raise the team’s level.

“Everton fans love their team to be competitive and aggressive. But they also love good football.

“Marco is a coach who improves players and, when you watch his teams, it is clear what he is asking from them. He has had a positive influence at all his previous clubs and quickly assembled a very good squad at Everton.”

Certainly, many are excited by his arrival at the club and it does seem as though he’s one of the better managers in the league right now.

He’s already got us playing football the right way and as the players continue to grow accustomed to how he wants them to work that should only improve.

Many think he’s going to be good for us, then, and so now it remains to be seen how exactly we get on this season in terms of challenging at the right end of the league.
