Marco Silva Signs New Fulham Deal: Cottagers Boss Backs Himself to Build on Success

Fulham’s manager, Marco Silva, has committed to a new three-year contract that extends his tenure at Craven Cottage until 2026. This comes after three months of deliberation since he was initially offered an extension.

Silva’s existing contract was set to expire in June, but under his leadership, Fulham earned a promotion back to the Premier League from the Championship in his debut season. He continued to impress by guiding the team to a 10th-place finish in the league, marking their highest position in 11 years in May.

In July of this year, Silva was presented with a new contract offer, which coincided with his rejection of a lucrative offer to manage in Saudi Arabia. However, Sky Sports News reported that he hesitated to put pen to paper at that time.

Currently, Fulham holds the 13th position in the league table after nine games, just one point away from the top half.

Expressing his satisfaction with the new contract, Silva told the club’s website, “I’m really pleased to sign a new contract as it was something we had been discussing for some time. It’s always a good sign when both parties are happy and want to continue working together.”

He emphasized his commitment to taking the club further in the Premier League, highlighting the importance of the trust and support he receives from the club’s owners. Silva also praised the dedication and ambition demonstrated by the players, emphasizing their role in the club’s success. He expressed gratitude to the fans for their unwavering support and looked forward to the journey ahead.
