Since Hull City’s relegation, there’s been rumours in Portugal and England saying that Watford are one of the clubs who would like to have Marco Silva as their manager.
These claims became even stronger on Wednesday, when Walter Mazzarri was sacked by the Hornets, and several English newspapers started mentioning Silva’s name as the number one target for replacement.
Portuguese newspaper A Bola also brings this story today, but the news isn’t exactly very good for those who want Silva at Watford.
It’s claimed that the manager will have “more seductive” offers in his hands, and it’s not about money, it’s about a better project. That’s why he still didn’t give Watford a response.
According to A Bola, Silva will make his decision in the next week. A return to Portugal, where he’s been linked to Porto, is ruled out, because his wish is to keep working in England.
Yesterday, A Bola had already said that despite Hull City’s offer to renew his contract, Silva would be looking for a better offer from the Premier League.
But it seems Watford aren’t good enough for him, at least for now.
