Marco Silva has hit again at Sam Allardyce after the brand new Everton supervisor scoffed at comparisons between himself and the Watford boss.
Allardyce, 63, used to be appointed as Everton boss closing week, however handiest after the Toffees had been compelled to surrender their pursuit of Silva.
In his first press convention at Goodison Park, Allardyce insisted his document as a trainer in comparison very favourably with the 40-year-old.
He stated: “I’ve each and every admire for Marco Silva and I’m really not criticising Marco Silva however Marco Silva’s observe document has were given no comparability in anyway with mine as a result of he were given Hull Town relegated.”
Silva replied over the weekend.
“I learn what he stated, but if he made this comparability it does no longer make sense,” stated Silva.
“It’s the similar factor if I evaluate his paintings with a national-team trainer like Gareth Southgate.
“It’s like me evaluating the 5 targets Richarlison has scored within the Premier League with Peter Crouch. Crouch is just about 37, Richarlison is 20 – Crouch has performed such a lot of video games and Richarlison some distance much less.
“Cross and notice what he [Allardyce] used to be doing when he used to be 40 years outdated, or see what he used to be doing in his first seven seasons as a trainer.
“Then have a look at what I’m doing on the similar age – or you’ll be able to wait till I’m 63 years outdated, after which we will be able to evaluate what I’ve achieved.”
