Everton boss Marco Silva has rubbished the criticism of former Toffees manager Sam Allardyce, after a recent flair up between the pair.
Allardyce had previously questioned on talkSPORT whether Silva could survive, whilst trying to balance a more attractive style of football and getting the results to go with it. However, the Portuguese dismissed his comments saying they are not worth listening to.
“One thing, you have to look at whether these people they love Everton, if they want Everton really winning, if they want some stability inside the club,” Silva told the press after his sides 2-1 FA Cup win over Lincoln City at the weekend.
“OK, if there are real Everton fans talking like that, then maybe we have to be aware and to look at it.
“But if some people don’t want good results, just instability within our club, they are not worth listening to.
“We have to look for what is important for us as a club. This club needs stability, our players need some stability, confidence, our fans also need that too. We have to be aware, and look for what is important for us as a club.
“And what is important for us as a club is what is happening inside. And to be aware if the people love the club – this is the most important. Don’t be aware of what people say if they have another agenda. This is the main thing for me.
“And believe me, I didn’t read, don’t know and it is not important for me.
“OK he is one colleague, one coach as well, but I don’t know what he is saying and it really is not important.
“OK, maybe if it is David Moyes maybe I would listen because he did something really important at this club. But in this case it is not important at all.”
