Marco Silva, who recently opted to leave his position as head coach of Hull City, has now been announced as the new Watford manager.
Hull City recently released a statement, where they made it clear that they were disappointed Silva was leaving, but added that he would always be remembered for his efforts to try and keep the club in the top flight after replacing former United assistant Mike Phelan on a short-term deal in January.
The Tigers also confirmed that they had given Silva the opportunity to continue as manager ahead of the next season, but he opted to leave – and now we know why.
The 39-year-old has been confirmed as the new Watford manager, after signing a new 2-year deal with the Hornets.
Watford chairman and CEO Scott Duxbury spoke about the appointment to the club’s official website, stating: “Marco was one of the most sought after Head Coaches in the Premier League. His pedigree and promise speaks for itself with his achievements in top divisions elsewhere across Europe, as well as his work at Hull City last season.
“We are delighted to have secured his services and to be welcoming a Head Coach of his profile and potential. It’s an exciting time to be a Watford fan, and I’m sure all supporters will join me in offering Marco and his family the warmest of welcomes to Vicarage Road.”
