Everton appoint new assistant manager

07 Jun 2019, 18:00

Everton has announced Luis Boa Morte as their new assistant manager following the departure of Joao Pedro Sousa.

The 41-year-old has signed a two-year deal to replace Marco Silva's long-term assistant Sousa, who stepped down from his position last week to become coach of Portuguese side Famalicao.

"I’m very happy to be joining Everton, a big club with so much history and tradition," he told Everton's official website.

"I’m excited to be working again with the manager, Marco Silva, who is a great coach and I would like to thank him for providing me with such a big opportunity.

Meeting

"I’m looking forward to meeting all the players and staff at the club when we return for pre-season training next month and start the preparations for the 2019/20 Premier League season."

Everton has moved quickly to fill the void by appointing Boa Morte, who previously worked with Silva at Sporting Lisbon in 2014-15 when in charge of the under-19 side.

The former Arsenal, Southampton, Fulham and West Ham forward has more recently spent time as assistant manager at Israeli side Maccabi Haifa, helping them finish second in the league.
