My point is that he was chosen by the manager and not the DOF, the telegraph even says they are mates.
I trust the manager less than I trust brands, so to me this looks like more of the same old Everton behaviour rather than nothing being the same (tm).
Do I need anything more to back up beyond that the above has given me cause for concern?
By the same token, what is it about the decision you like, beyond that they're mates?
The manager picks who he wants to work with. Donít know if Iím missing something here but what clubs out there let the director of football choose the assistant manager?
You donít need to back it up more, i just think your concerns arenít really valid, and smack of creating a narrative.
Oh Iíve offered no opinion on whether I like this appointment or not. I take issue with your stance that this is Ďlazyí, your insinuation that Silva has just picked him because theyíre mates, and your insistence that the director of football should pick the assistant manager and not the fella that has to work with him on a daily basis.
Iíd be happy if you could provide examples of a director of football hiring an assistant with the input of the manager though.
