Watford appoint Marco Silva

Marco Silva has been appointed as the new manager of Watford

After leaving Hull City following their relegation from the Premier League and being linked with several clubs ever since, the future of Marco Silva has now been decided. Silva will take charge of Watford, who have been without a manager since the dismissal of Walter Mazzarri.

Silva has been offered a two year deal by The Hornets, and he will be hoping to provide the club with a managerial stability that they have severely lacked in recent years. The Portuguese manager is the ninth that the club have appointed in the last five years. 

Watford chairman Scott Duxbury believes that Silva is a great appointment for the club and added: "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."

Crystal Palace were also interested in appointing Marco Silva, after the shock resignation of Sam Allardyce earlier in the week. Their search for a new manager goes on, with former Leeds United manager Garry Monk now the favourites with bookmakers.
