Marco Silva and Marcel Brands feature heavily in the local and national newspapers after the duo were introduced to the press at USM Finch Farm yesterday afternoon.

The Guardian focuses on Silva’s aim to build a lasting legacy at the Club, as he vowed that his Everton side will play with “big commitment, a big attitude and big ambition”.

The Daily Star also carries quotes from Silva emphasising his desire to remain with the Blues for many years to come, with the 40-year-old stating “I am clear when I say the Club needs some stability and I want some stability”.

The Liverpool Echo described Silva and Brands as “relaxed, focused and meticulous” during their media conference.

The local read features comments from Brands, who revealed that he received offers from other Premier League clubs but “had a special feeling from day one with Everton”.

The Echo also quotes Silva speaking about the Club’s transfer plans. The new manager said the Toffees “will be assertive and attack the market, take the right decisions and sign the right players for us.”

In the Yorkshire Post, meanwhile, former Blues goalkeeper Nigel Martyn has backed Jordan Pickford to shine if handed a starting spot at his summer’s World Cup, saying “he had an excellent season at Everton and will be going into the tournament full of confidence".
