Manager Bio

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

Born in Lisbon, Silva 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 Estoril shortly after retiring and then became their manager in 2011/12.

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

Single season spells and trophies followed at Sporting Lisbon and then Olympiacos.

Silva's first role in English football came at Hull City in January 2017, but he would spend just four months before leaving in May.

Two days later, Watford announced Silva as Walter Mazzarri's replacement at Vicarage Road for the 2017/18 season.

However, 11 points from the next 16 matches led to Silva's departure.

At the end of May 2018, Everton announced Silva would take over from Sam Allardyce.

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

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

Silva led Fulham straight back to the Premier League, with his free-scoring side netting 106 goals on their way to the Championship title.

He led them to an impressive 10th-place finish in their first season back, and a steady 13th spot in 2023/24.
