Watford FC have appointed former Hull City boss Marco Silva as their new manager. The Portuguese has signed a two-year contract, and has become Watford’s ninth boss in five years under the Pozzo’s regime. Silva went to Hull in a perilous position but gave them a chance by winning eight of his 22 games in all competitions. The 39-year-old succeeds Walter Mazzarri who was sacked after his side lost six straight games, and finished in seventeenth place. Speaking to the Watford FC website, the former Olympiacos and Sporting manager said: “Firstly I really like the approach of the board and the owner. They showed me the project and I like the ambition. “The club want to improve for the next seasons and this is what I try to fight for in my career as well – to always improve, to do a good job and to ensure a good connection between the manager and the club. “The ambition this club has is really important to me. I’m excited. It’s a good challenge and I’m really happy.” “It’s important to us that everybody knows what our goal is. The club is moving forward as a Premier League club but we always want to improve our position in the table and that’s important for next season. “We want to play good football so that our fans feel well when they come to see our team play. “We’ll work hard every day to prepare for the matches and to do our best in every game.” “First of all I’m excited to be here, to start to work and to prepare for the next season. We will work hard to start well in the Premier League. “Everybody knows it’s a hard competition but we come with confidence to improve every day and this is most important for me. This confidence I will pass to our players and to our fans as well.”
