Replaced by Carlo Ancelotti at Everton, Marco Silva has been without a job since December 2019.

The Portuguese manager had been in charge at Goodison Park since May 2018, but a poor run of performances to kick off the first half of the 2019-20 campaign led to an early dismissal from his role.

His successor has since managed to somewhat steady the ship, as the Toffees sit 12th in the Premier League, four points off seventh, and most are happy with how things are going.

Despite this untimely end, Silva’s CV remains impressive, especially since he’s only 42, and Onda Deportiva, a show on Onda Cero, are reporting he is one of the names being looked at to take over at Valencia.

The La Liga side recently got rid of Albert Celades after a loss against Villarreal, as they are eighth in the table, six points off Getafe, currently in fifth.

Onda Deportiva claim Silva is ‘one of the candidates’ to take over for next season’s exercise, and remind everyone the former Everton manager was close to taking over in 2016.

That’s around the time his spell at Olympiakos came to an end, which he then followed, six months later, by taking the Hull City job and impressing, ultimately leading to his time at Watford and then Goodison Park.
