'We need stability as a club here': Marco Silva believes he retains the support of owner Farhad Moshiri as his Everton squad prepare for Premier League return against BournemouthMarco Silva accepted that Everton need a strong second half of the season Owner Farhad Moshiri had called the club's season far 'not good enough' The Toffees are currently 11th in the Premier League and next face BournemouthThe  squad were wrapped up warm as they trained at their Finch Farm base

Marco Silva insists he is thriving under the pressure at Everton but warned he is not a magician and cannot deliver instant success.

The Portuguese has found his position being scrutinised. The issue started with some unhelpful remarks from former manager Sam Allardyce the day after Everton lost at home to Leicester, but it became more significant after major shareholder Farhad Moshiri spoke at the club's AGM. 

Moshiri, who has sacked three managers in less than three years at Goodison Park, stressed the club's current position in 11th place was not good enough and that he expected more.

Silva, though, does not have any concerns that the Iranian billionaire is becoming impatient.

He is in regular contact with Moshiri and Chairman Bill Kenwright and he is as frustrated as anyone by a sequence that has seen Everton win one of their last eight Premier League matches but is confident his methods will pay dividends.

'What I can tell you about my relationship with our owner, with our chairman and all the structure of the club is very, very good,' said Silva, whose side face Bournemouth on Saturday. 

'I'm not here to make statements about what the club did in the past with one or three managers.

'What I can tell you about this club, I knew in the past as I did my homework. Now I'm more ready and able to speak about everything at Everton. We as a club need that patience but we need stability as a club here.'

There can be times when Silva is taciturn and he does not like to give much away when he sits in front of the press, but he showed aside of himself at Finch Farm on Friday that had previously been unseen - he spoke with authority and there was also a noticeable fight, as he stood up for himself.

On his relationship with Moshiri, Silva added: 'I know what he thinks about the club and he knows my opinion about the club also. I know what he asked me to do when I joined the club. It is not something to do in six months because that would not make sense. 

'I did not come here to be a magician. That is not for me. I am a manager and when I came in, we had many, many things to change for something in the future. I'm sure, step-by-step, with some stability and doing the right things we will achieve that.' 

Everton's problem is the fact they need a recognised centre-forward. They are interested in Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi but any dealings they do in January, Silva said, are dependent on them selling someone first.

'I don't like to find excuses,' Silva said. 'I'm here to work with our squad. I will do every day 100 per cent to improve and I know what we have already improved.'
