Everton manager Marco Silva is under serious pressure after a poor start to the season.

David Moyes (L) looks on during the UEFA Nations League Semi-Final match between Portugal and Switzerland at Estadio do Dragao on June 05, 2019 in Porto, Portugal.

Tony Cascarino has claimed that David Moyes can turn Everton around if he were to return to the club as he also thinks that the blue half of Merseyside is 'envious' of Liverpool's style of play.

Marco Silva is under serious amounts of pressure at Goodison Park, with Everton sitting in the relegation zone and struggling to put together any encouraging performances. 

That has resulted in speculation, with The Mirror claiming that Moyes would be open to an Everton return, with the pressure hotting up on Silva. 

 

Speaking to The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show on TalkSport (09/10/2019 at 7:20 am), Cascarino shared his thoughts on Moyes potentially returning to Goodison. 

"One thing I would say is that David Moyes was very unlucky to lose his position at West Ham," Cascarino told TalkSport. "The job he did there with Stuart Pearce was terrific. 

"He had an amazing time as an Everton manager. He managed Everton without money when they were really literally trying to make things meat on the sort of type of player he's bringing to the football club. The millions that have been spent in recent years, David Moyes didn't get even close to that. 

David Moyes looks on during the Premier League match between Burnley FC and Brighton & Hove Albion at Turf Moor on December 8, 2018 in Burnley, United Kingdom.

"It would be interesting with how the Everton fans feel about that because it would be a little bit mixed because obviously sometimes with pragmatic football, you get criticised and fans want a bit more. Liverpool are playing a style of play down the road that Everton would be envious of. I could totally see he would be the man who would turn the football club around." 

Moyes, 56, has managed the likes of Manchester United, La Liga side Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham since leaving Everton.  

The senior man's biggest struggle came with Sunderland, who ended up going down during his season in charge, though he did help West Ham maintain their status when they were struggling prior to his arrival.

Either way, a return for Moyes would more than likely not go down well with the Everton supporters because they are looking towards the future and trying to take the next step.
