Everton boss Silva warns Pickford of his ‘obligations’ after nightclub fracas

Everton boss Marco Silva has warned Jordan Pickford over his ‘obligations’ following the goalkeeper’s involvement  in a nightclub fracas.

Footage emerged this week of the 25-year-old involved in an altercation during a night out in Sunderland, with the England international reacting after being taunted during a night on the town.

No one is believed to have been seriously injured during the incident, though police are investigating the disturbance.

Silva admits he is not happy with the situation, and says he has reminded Pickford about his ‘obligations’.

“The first chat of the week I was clear with him,” Silva told the press ahead of his sides clash with Arsenal at Goodison on Sunday.

”Everything is clear in his mind about his obligations. It is my expectation it won’t happen again. No one is happy with the situation, it was not a good thing. The matter is finished in this moment.”

“Football players have duties and obligations. It is a matter for us to remind him and everything we must do we already did.

“If you ask me as a manager I am not happy with what happened.”
