Silva Slams Everton Players for ‘Hiding’ After Poor Start.

Everton manager Marco Silva has accused his under-performing players of “hiding” after a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign.

Ahead of Tuesday’s League Cup trip to Sheffield Wednesday, Silva did not hold back with the criticism and demanded a reaction from his players.

“It is not the moment for anyone to hide,” Silva told British media.

“I said it inside the dressing room, too (after the Sheffield United defeat) – there is nowhere we can hide, we have to show stronger character, personality.

“It is a moment for us to go and play football and to take responsibility as well… I am ­always here for our fans, I will not hide, no one can hide.”

The Merseyside club have suffered defeats in three of their past four Premier League matches, the latest coming at home against newly-promoted Sheffield United last weekend, putting Silva’s position under pressure.
