Everton facing points deduction for 'tapping-up' of Marco Silva

It's claimed that the Premier League hoped the issue between Watford and Everton would be solved while negotiating the purchase of Richarlison during the summer.

Silva was eventually sacked by Watford in January after a deterioration of their results, with one win in 11 matches, with the club saying Everton's "illegal" approach had been a "catalyst for this decision".

Lucas Digne says that he left Barcelona to join Everton in order to play under Marco Silva and participate in the "project" at Goodison Park.

"I don't have thoughts about the situation", said Silva.

'I don't lose my focus, I am really calm with the situation and my focus is on what is important for me and for us as a club and it is the next game.

"I don't hear anything". We have a good mix because we have experienced players who have played here for a few years and we can learn together and get the club higher up the table.

Henrik Zetterberg is done playing professional hockey, Red Wings GM says
Ken Holland told reporters at Red Wings training camp in Traverse City on Friday that Zetterberg has made a decision to retire. He had 11 goals and 45 assists in 2017-18 as the Red Wings missed the playoffs for the second straight year.

Instead, they see it as the next step in the process towards a satisfactory conclusion for all parties.

The player, who remains unnamed in the report, since moved to Manchester United and his new club apparently agreed to pay the £10,000 compensation that Cardiff demanded from Everton after the schoolboy's development was allegedly disrupted by the Merseyside club's pursuit.

The investigation will centre on an alleged "tapping-up" of Silva while he was the head coach of Watford.

It remains possible but unlikely that Everton could face a points deduction if found guilty.

"On being made aware of this, we immediately launched an internal investigation and have been cooperating fully with all of the relevant authorities".
