Marco Silva has agreed to take over as Fulham manager on a three-year contract, having turned down an offer from Fenerbahce to take over at the Championship club.
The former Hull City and Watford manager has been out of work since leaving Everton in December 2019. At Fulham he will replace Scott Parker, who has joined Bournemouth.
Silva has had mixed results in England since joining Hull City in 2017. He oversaw an upturn in results but could not prevent them from being relegated. He joined Watford that summer and the team started well but their form nose-dived after he was linked with the Everton job. He was dismissed in January 2018 and took the reins at Goodison four months later.
Again he made a good start and Everton finished eighth in his first season but the second campaign did not go according to plan, with the Portuguese sacked in December 2019 with the team 18th in the Premier League.
En an interview with the Guardian in May 2021 él dijo: “I want to be ready for the next challenge. I watch many games in many different leagues. I always watch the Premier League but not only that league: you have to be ready, I never stop.”
