Silva has no problems giving youth a chance

Marco Silva Everton managerNew Everton boss Marco Silva says he is more than prepared to give young players at the club a chance in the first team if they are good enough.

This will come as music to the ears of some Everton fans who have levelled accusations at previous managers that they were not prepared to give enough young players a shot.

Silva, though, says that he treats all players equally regardless of age, and as long as a player is good enough then they will get their chance.

“It is really important [to have gifted youngsters at the club],” he said.

“And it is more important when you have the quality [we have] in our Academy as well.

“For me, the age is not the most important thing. For me, it is more or less the same approach for a player whether he is 18 or 30. [You have] the same demands of him.

“Of course, the most important thing is the quality.

“If they have quality, whether they are 18, 19 or 20, it is not really important. I am sure I will give them all the support and prepare them to give them the chance to play if they deserve to. I have the courage to take these types of decisions.

“If they deserve to play more than the others, they will have the chance.

“It is a matter of competition between the players and, after, I take the best decisions to win the match. This is the most important thing.”
