Fulham manager Marco Silva responds to links with Tottenham Hotspur job
Fulham manager Marco Silva has been linked with the managerial role at Tottenham Hotspur given Antonio Conte’s contract situation.
The Italian manager is in the final four months of his deal at Spurs and could leave as a free agent this summer. There is no strong sign of a renewal being on the horizon.
Silva, 45, joined the Cottagers in the summer of 2021 and helped them win promotion to the Premier League last summer. He still has just under 16 months left on his contract at Craven Cottage.
Speaking ahead of his team’s league clash against league-leaders Arsenal on Sunday, Silva replied to rumours linking him to the job at Spurs (h/t the Athletic) [h/t Subscription Required].
“I have this season and another year on my contract at this club. I am really happy here and won’t make any comments on that.”
What should Spurs do?
Not an issue. We can do better than the Portuguese tactician, at least on paper. Sure, he would have ideas and tactics of his own that he would want to implement here.
Given his age, Silva could also represent a new generation in management who have a more contemporary approach towards managing a team. But his C.V. doesn’t make for the best reading.
He had disappointing spells at Watford and Everton in England before becoming Fulham’s boss, a team who were in the Championship at the time they appointed Silva. This season, he has proven his worth.
Fulham are seventh in the table right now after having played 26 games. He is working miracles over there and it is safe to say Spurs will be the ‘biggest’ club he manages if he were to get this job.
