Hull City FC news: Marco Silva refuses to commit future to the club following relegation from the Premier League

14 May

Marco Silva has refused to reveal whether he will remain Hull City manager following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.

Silva sparked an impressive turnaround in form at the KCOM Stadium after replacing Mike Phelan in January but fell short of masterminding a great escape.

The Portuguese has earned widespread praise for the job he has done and Hull fans are eager for him to stay on.

But Silva was non-committal when asked about his future plans after Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, which confirmed the Tigers’ relegation.

“It is not the moment to talk about the situation,” said the 39-year-old, who is reportedly being eyed by Watford.

“I respect too much the club and these fans, who have been amazing since I came here. It’s the moment to speak to the chairman and the board. The club needs to understand what they need to do differently in the future, and we’ll do that next.

“Now is not the moment to talk about the future of the manager. It’s about the future of the club.

“I will talk to the board and the chairman first, talking inside the walls of the club. Not for you.”
