Marco Silva pens new Fulham contract

Fulham manager Marco Silva has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2026.

Silva, whose previous deal at Fulham was due to expire next year, was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and Al-Ahli last summer but he opted to remain in west London.

To further highlight his commitment to his current employers, Silva has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal.

“I feel that the business is not done yet – we’ve had two great seasons, and the goal is clearly there to sustain this club in the Premier League,” the 46-year-old told Fulham’s official website.

“This is key for the future of this club, and we are working hard to achieve it – it is important to feel the trust and have the support of our owners.

“My relationship with them, and with Fulham Football Club as a whole, has been really important in this decision and the success of the last two seasons.

“The commitment and ambition that these players have demonstrated since day one has been the key to what we have achieved, and that will always continue to be the case, along with the unconditional support of our fans, who are fundamental. Let’s continue together on this long journey.”

Fresh from winning the Championship title in 2022, Silva led Fulham to a 10th-place finish on their return to the Premier League last time out and currently has them in 11th position after the first nine rounds of matches this term.

After a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur last time out, the Portuguese manager will be looking to get his side back to winning ways when they visit the Amex Stadium to face off against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
