Marco Silva says he is seeking ‘stability’ in his managerial career and thinks he has found the right fit with Fulham.

The Portuguese head coach succeeded Scott Parker in the Craven Cottage hotseat earlier this summer having been desperate to return to England following his spells with Hull City, Watford and Everton. He told Sky Sports that he was hoping to put down roots in London with his new employers:

“Definitely, definitely. Three clubs, but three different situations. Of course, we knew when I joined Hull, it was in the middle of the season and we took a risk to come to the Premier League because the club was in a difficult situation. I can tell you that was a really good moment for us as a technical staff, even if the end was not good enough. We didn’t achieve that fantastic thing that we were really close to doing but the way people welcomed us in England. The Hull City fans, the city as well for us was something we will never forget.

“Of course, it was a matter of progress as well. We had some offers from Premier League and I went to Watford and Everton, but stability is something that I want for my career. I think I want it and Fulham needs some stability as well. We need as a technical staff to build something [for] longer than in the past and, for us, Fulham looks the right place to do it because they want to grow us a club. They want to do it. They are supporting us and the club needs some stability and some continuity as well. To be honest, I believe it is the right place to do it.”
