The Portuguese media portray each Marco Silva match as crucial to maintaining his job at Everton.

The Portuguese manager is in his second season at Goodison Park, but has experienced a tough start so far.

Silva has managed other English football teams, such as Hull City and Watford before coming to Everton.

And prior to English football, Silva managed Estoril Praia, helping them reach the UEFA Europa League back in 2014.

After that, he went on to manage Sporting Clube de Portugal, but ended up being fired.

He travelled to Greece and was manager of Olympiacos, but quit his job for personal reasons.

He signed with Everton in July 2018 and his journey at Everton has been widely reported in the Portuguese media.

The Portuguese newspaper, O Jogo featured Silva’s salary at Everton ahead of his presentation in July 2018 and how it was lower than his two predecessors. Silva was expected to earn about £3 million.

Other Portuguese news outlets such as RTP Noticias focus more on his results, especially now as each game is labelled as a “must-win.”

A Bola, another Portuguese newspaper makes more feature stories, as well as focusing on the poor start to the season that Everton has had.

A Bola shows more of what happens behind the scenes, including quotes from his technical staff, with Duncan Ferguson saying that everyone supports Marco Silva: “Everyone supports the manager and we know that the fans always support the club. We just have to turn things around and make sure we channel everything positive into victories. That is what we look to do.”

After Andre Gomes’s horrific injury, A Bola and other Portuguese news outlets, such as RTP Noticias and Diario de Noticias published several stories regarding his injury.

Several updates were published through the whole Portuguese media, especially after Everton beat Southampton on Saturday.

Marco Silva dedicated that victory to Andre Gomes and Jean-Phillipe Gbamin. He said after the match: “These three points are not just for Andre, but also for Gbamin. We already had two players that undergone surgery.”

The Portuguese also added: “Andre is already at home and will be happy with the victory. He sent me a message before the match, to support the team. He will always be in our thoughts and we will continue to support him.”

The Portuguese media, headlined the victory over Southampton as the most important one so far and that it could turn things around. It also portrays Silva as a manager that genuinely cares for his players’ well-being and gives his best for the team.
