Fulham head coach Marco Silva felt his side didn’t show enough fight as the Championship winners were thrashed 4-0 at Sheffield United on the final day of the season.

The Blades booked a play-off place with a comprehensive victory, secured by three goals in the first 25 minutes from Morgan Gibbs-White, Iliman N’diaye and Sander Berge. Wing-back Enda Stevens added a fourth early in the second half.

Silva told his post-match press conference:

“It wasn’t the way we wanted to finish the season. It was a tough result for us. We started well and dominated until they scored the first goal. The way we conceded the second and third goals reflects our performance.

“It is a good thing that in the last 15 days we had two moments to celebrate. The players deserve it.

“With the ball, we were really good in certain moments of the game but without the ball it was not good enough. We were not aggressive enough – most of the challenges they won.

“In terms of organisation, we were not at the level we should be and of course they punished us in those moments.

“I know why we lost the game, and we have to analyse the game and to prepare well ourselves for next season. It is a really important moment for this football club next season.”
