Manager Bio

Marco Silva was appointed as Fulham head coach in July 2021.

The Lisbon-born manager had a 15-year professional playing career in Portugal before retiring with second-tier Estoril at the age of 33 in June 2011.

Silva was appointed director of football at the Portuguese club shortly after retiring and then became Estoril's manager early in the 2011/12 season.

After guiding them to the top flight as champions, Silva led Estoril to UEFA Europa League qualification in the following season.

One campaign at Sporting followed, including silverware via the Taca de Portugal, before Silva led Olympiacos to the Superleague Greece title in 2015/16.

A small hiatus from football was ended on 5 January 2017 when Hull City announced the Portuguese as the club's new head coach.

An upturn in results followed for the team that lay bottom at Christmas, including a long unbeaten run at home.

However, the club were relegated with one match to spare, and Hull announced Silva had opted to leave his position at the KCOM Stadium on 25 May 2017.

Two days later, Watford announced Silva as Walter Mazzarri's replacement at Vicarage Road.

The 2017/18 campaign started well for Watford, with the club moving into fourth place after a 2-1 win over Arsenal in mid-October. However, 11 points from the next 16 matches led to Silva's departure.

At the end of May 2018, Everton announced Silva as their replacement for Sam Allardyce at Goodison Park.

Everton finished eighth in Silva’s first season in charge but the two departed ways in December 2019, with the Toffees in the bottom three.

After a lengthy break from football, Silva returned to take charge of Fulham in the summer of 2021 following their relegation from the Premier League.

Silva led Fulham straight back to the top-flight at the first time of asking, with his free-scoring side netting 106 goals on their way to the Championship title.
