Troy Deeney has urged Watford fans not to boo Marco Silva, but rather let the players ‘kick the s**t out of’ Everton on Saturday.
The Portuguese boss returns to Vicarage Road for the first time since he was sacked last season.
After pursuing Silva for much of the first half of the season, the Toffees turned their interest to Sam Allardyce instead and waited until the summer to get their man.
Watford fans were furious as the interest in their manager saw their season start to take a negative turn, but Deeney has explained to fans how he plans to get his own personal slice of revenge.
Speaking at a fan event, Deeney said: “The people who work at Everton are fantastic. Not the manager.
“We’d prefer it if you left [Silva] alone… It’ll only motivate them more.
