Cape Town - Newly appointed Everton manager Marco Silva says he will need time to settle at the club but knows he must grind results immediately to win over the fans.

Silva replaced Sam Allardyce, who was sacked after six months in charge of the club despite being contracted to Everton until June 2019.

Allardyce was heavily criticised by fans for his management and Everton's style of play before he was sacked.

The young Portuguese manager is also aware of the demands of the supporters that want to see the club playing attractive football.

Silva told Sky Sports: "We know what the next step is, and it is something you cannot change in one month, you need time, but you need to start to get results from the first moment as well.

"Big project, huge club. I know what is behind me and what the fans expect from our team and we are ready to prove every day what we want.

"We need to build a strong connection between the team and the fans. When I played here the last two seasons there was a fantastic atmosphere.

"They are demanding, and the fans reflect how big the club is, so we need to give them some good feelings as well.

"I am sure if they feel we are doing everything every single match I am sure they will be proud of our team."
