Ex-Watford boss Marco Silva aiming for Premier League return

Former Everton and Watford boss Marco Silva is aiming for a Premier League return.

The Portuguese spent 18 months in charge of the Blues, before being sacked in December and replaced by Carlo Ancelotti.

"No doubts it is my aim to manage in the Premier League, " Silva told Sky Sports.

"I love the Premier League. I have managed three different clubs in the Premier League and it's the toughest competition in the world.

"We have many things to keep proving in the Premier League and it is something I'm looking for in my future. I don't know if it will be soon or not, but of course it's my aim.

"I am preparing for the right one. That doesn't mean it has to just be in the Premier League. I have targets to manage in different leagues as well. I am not desperate to go for anywhere.

"This lockdown stopped the world a little bit and you have to look at life, which is becoming the right way step-by-step, and football too.

"There is no doubts I am a better manager now. I remember when I joined the first club in the Premier League what I had to prove in that moment. I took a risk with Hull because the club was not I the best position in the table.

"But it was a fantastic period for me. And when I go again, I have to prove again - because you have to prove yourself every day in football. For sure I have to be a better manager now."
