Fulham ready to offer Marco Silva new contract

Fulham are ready to hand a new long-term contract to manager Marco Silva as a reward for his outstanding progress with the club, 90min understands.

Fulham are firmly on course to avoid relegation for the first time in three promotions, and have accumulated more points after 19 games this season than they did during the entire 2020/21 campaign.

90min understands that Fulham are keen to reward Silva's outstanding work with a new contract, knowing that the club's progress under the Portuguese has not gone unnoticed elsewhere in the Premier League.

Indeed, Fulham believe that extending Silva's stay is crucial to their project in both the short and long-term, and there's hope that the 45-year-old will want to put pen to paper on a new deal after a sustained run of fantastic results.
