Hull City appoint Marco Silva as new manager

Just a couple of days after sacking former manager, ‘Mike Phelan’, Hull City have appointed Marco Silva as their new manager.

The Portuguese manager takes over the club until the end of the season.

The 39-year old who left Greek side, Olympiakos in the summer of 2016 will take charge of Hull City's next match against fellow strugglers, Swansea City in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Hull City vice-chairman, ‘Ehab Allam’ who spoke on Silva's appointment revealed that the club was impressed with the philosophy and football style of the former Sporting Lisbon boss.

He said;

"Marco is a young coach who has impressed us with his philosophy and football style, He has a great track record and we feel this is a bold and exciting appointment in our aim to retain the club's Premier League status".

"We are already working hard with Marco and his team to deliver some key additions to our squad during this transfer window".

Marco Silva led Sporting Lisbon to the Portuguese Cup in 2015 before he was sacked that same year. He also led Olympiakos to their 43rd Greek title before leaving in the summer of last year.

Welcome to Hull, Marco Silva.
