Luis Boa Morte

Boa Morte appointment raises more than eyebrows at Everton

Everton’s appointment of former Fulham and West Ham man Luis Boa Morte has raised more than a few eyebrows among Evertonians, who the 41 year old once lashed out at during his playing days.

Boa Morte sparked a strange sequence of events after the Blues had lost 2-1 to Fulham in London, accusing Duncan Ferguson – with whom he will be working closely under Marco Silva – of racially abusing him. The claims were found to be false, and Boa Morte had also been involved in an incident during the match as Everton fans launched lighters and programmes at him.

He will hope that his words about the club can go some way to earn him a warmer welcome than the last appointment of an assistant manager that Evertonians weren’t impressed with. That of Sammy Lee.

Boa Morte, having worked with Marco Silva before in Portugal, has already cut his teeth in management at the lower levels in his native land, and will bring some experience as well as a good working knowledge of the Everton manager.

He told the official site, “I’m very happy to be joining Everton, a big club with so much history and tradition.

“I’m excited to be working again with the manager, Marco Silva, who is a great coach and I would like to thank him for providing me with such a big opportunity.

“I’m looking forward to meeting all the players and staff at the Club when we return for pre-season training next month and start the preparations for the 2019/20 Premier League season.”
