The attitude of the Senegal international, has made his boss laud his professionalism;
‘Firstly, he showed me and all of you how he is a good professional,” Silva told Echo.
‘Sometimes, when you have an opportunity in your mind but you lose it because you have a contract with the club and you are an important player for that club, and you miss out on what could be your dream, sometimes it is not easy for a player.
‘He is showing how he is a good professional and how he is working really hard.
‘He is having a very good season, his best season at Everton. He is improving, knowing better what I want coming from a player in his position.
‘He is enjoying his football and he is improving every match.
‘Let’s see. He is an important player and will continue being an important player but about what can happen in the summer or not, this is something I cannot control but we are really happy with him.
Gueye has been handed a deep-lying midfield role this season and Silva is impressed with his performances in the position.
‘Sometimes last season he played a little bit more forward but we have asked him to play a bit more positional,
‘I am giving him a little bit of a different role and he is improving and knowing better what the team needs from him,the Everton manager added.
