'The fans have a right to be angry': Marco Silva says he understands frustration of Everton supporters after Toffees' suffer fourth consecutive Premier League defeat leaves them one point above relegation zone
Everton 's beleaguered manager Marco Silva admitted it was "normal" for the club supporters to be angry after they suffered their fourth consecutive Premier League defeat at Burnley .
Silva went over to applaud the disenchanted visiting fans following a 1-0 defeat that left the club just one point above the relegation zone.
'It was a moment for us to go to them and not the dressing room. It was a moment to listen and feel their emotions,' he said. 'The fans deserve our respect. They have a right to be angry, no doubt. They will keep supporting us but if you are asking if they should be angry with the team and myself, then of course, that is normal.
'In the last four games we didn't get the results and they have all the reasons to be angry with us. It is up to us to work harder, to be braver, to be more clinical and for our attacking players need to be more aggressive and assertive in these type of games.
'I understand 100 per cent why the supporters are angry.'
Many fans called on Everton director of football Marcel Brands to sack Silva as he walked past them on his way to the dressing-room area.
Only half of Everton's team walked over to acknowledged the away support after the final whistle but Silva was reluctant to harshly criticise those who didn't. 'It is a difficult moment for them (the players) as well,' he said.
