Everton manager Marco Silva is livid with the reports his goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was involved in a street scuffle.

The England shot-stopper was captured in a video involved in a brawl outside a Sunderland pub.

And one man who didn’t take the situation lightly was the club manager Silva who feels Pickford should be acting as a role model.

“No-one is happy with the situation – it was not a good thing,” Silva said.


“If you ask me as a manager I am not happy with what happened,” he added.

Silva went on: “Everything we must do we already did. It is my expectation it won’t happen again.

“The first chat of the week I was clear with [Pickford]. Everything is clear in his mind about his obligations. The matter is finished at this moment.”

However, the Police in Northumbria opened up the investigation regarding the issue following the scuffle on Monday night.

“Enquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident and locate those involved.”

They added via BBC: “Nobody is believed to have been seriously injured and no arrests have been made.”
