Bielsa tops list of potential Silva replacements

The Sunday tabloids have been quick to seize on Marco Silva's travails at Everton with two reports suggesting that Marcelo Bielsa would be a top consideration to replace the Portuguese.

A former manager of the Argentine and Chilean national teams as well as Lille and Marseilles, the colourful and revered Bielsa has made an impressive start to life in England at Leeds United.

He has the Yorkshire club challenging for promotion back to the Premier League after years in the Football League but made headlines earlier this year when it emergence he had sent spies to watch a rival team's training sessions.

Bielsa is still under investigation by the EFL for the incident but both The Mirror and Express claim that “highly-placed sources” at Everton have said that Bielsa would be first choice “should the axe fall” on Silva following a dreadful run of results since November.
