Marco Silva Fulham

Marco Silva revealed he was close to joining a club in a different country before Fulham made him an offer. Fulham will be Silva’s fourth club in England after previously managing Hull, Watford, and Everton. He will be replacing Scott Parker who departed the club before joining Bournemouth. Silva said although he had options from other clubs choosing Fulham was an easy decision.

“Firstly, I’m very happy to be back in England of course, this was my aim for me to come back,” new Fulham boss Marco Silva said. “After the approach of Fulham Football Club, I decided that it was the right time to come back and to join this project. Of course, I’m really happy. The approach of the club was really assertive and they showed me a good project, they showed a big interest in ourselves as well as a technical staff and we are really happy to be here.”

“To be honest, it was an easy decision. I was close to joining a different club in a different country as well but I really appreciated the interest the club showed in ourselves, (which) was really important,” he added. “First from Alistair (Mackintosh, chief executive officer) and after from Tony (Khan, vice-chairman) and Mr. Khan (Shahid Khan, owner) was very important for us, they welcomed us really well, they showed the project, they showed trust in ourselves.”

Marco Silva has already brought in Harry Wilson from Liverpool as well as Paulo Gazzaniga from Tottenham. He hopes they can bring a couple of players in before the transfer window closes.
