This Thursday, we showed the coverage Wolves’ win over Leeds United was getting in Portugal, with the local press falling in love with Nuno Espírito Santo’s side.
Now today, it’s time for another Portuguese manager to be in the spotlight, and that’s Watford boss Marco Silva.
Recent developments about an approach from Everton deserved a full page in Record today, who make quite a critical review of what has been going on in the Toffees’ chase.
After opening the story with Silva’s quotes from yesterday, when he had to ask the local reporters to stop asking about Everton, Record calls the English journalists ‘aggressive’ and ‘insistent’, taking the chance to make a ‘poisoned question’.
Record also claims that Watford made a ‘radical change’, as the club used to ‘change managers as someone change sshirts’, and now are doing it differently with Silva, as the €11m offer from Everton ‘was thrown in the bin’.
The newspaper even interviewed English journalist Ron Walker, from the Watford Observer, to give it a local angle to the story this time.
So as Everton continue struggling to find a new manager, even the foreign press is highlighting the situation the club has been through. The Toffees were also criticised by the Italian media today, this time for their poor transfer market additions.
