Marco Silva insists the Jose Mourinho’s removal from Manchester United’s managerial post isn’t a good message for football.
United decided to sack Mourinho following the worst start to their ongoing campaign. The Red Devils have given the charge to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a caretaker manager while they are doing an extensive review process before finalising a name for the vacant post.
Silva could relate to this incident as Watford sacked him after just 26 matches despite having a pretty eventful season with the Hornets. He later joined Everton at the start if this season and has done a commendable job with the Toffees as they are currently in eighth place in the Premier League table.
Silva said, “I think football needs the best managers.
“Jose is one of the best managers in the world.
“For me it is really bad news. He is a friend. Always when you see a manager leave a club it is bad news and when he is a friend and a coach like Jose it is always bad news for football.
“I am sure Jose will come back even stronger than he was at Manchester United and be ready to win again.
“He is a winner. He won in other countries and he will win again for sure and will come stronger for the next project.
“I would say the same if one of the best players was injured for four or five months. It was the same when [Kevin] De Bruyne was out. Football needs De Bruyne. When De Bruyne is out it is bad for football.”
