Marco Silva: Phil Jagielka deserves great Goodison reception

Everton manager Marco Silva is convinced Phil Jagielka will get a heroes welcome when he returns to Goodison Park this weekend.

Everton take on Sheffield United in the Premier League and Jagielka will turn out against the Toffees for the first time following a 12-year spell with Everton.

Silva said: “For sure he will have the reception he deserves, no doubts about that.

“You know how our fans are, the passion for our club, and for the players who give 100 per cent of his commitment for the blue shirt it's normal they have the reception they deserve.

“Phil Jagielka will have for sure the big reception tomorrow until the moment we kick off and after that we want to win and for sure he will want the same because he's a professional but it will be nice to see how they will welcome him in our stadium again,” he added.
