Hull City manager Marco Silva is yet to determine his next move following the relegation of the club to the Sky Bet Championship.
The coach is expected to meet with the club’s owners for discussions as he declined to commit his future to the club.
City fell to a heavy defeat in the hands of Crystal Palace, confirming that their status would change next season after a fight to remain. The manager joined in January as he agreed to a six-month deal. There was an option to remain for another year but Silva might decline.
Silva is poised to discuss his future with the owners ahead of the visit of Spurs to Kcom Stadium. Silva is expected to discuss happenings before and during his tenure that ended their new status. But he could have to reveal his plans for the next season.
“It’s the moment to speak to the chairman and the board. The club needs to understand what they need to do differently in the future, and we’ll do that next,” Silva revealed.
Silva said Hull started poorly. He blamed their pre-season efforts for failing to prepare even though they were aware of their new status.
“We tried to do many things in January but it’s not good to be signing six or seven players in January and losing two in the market. You should be doing that in June, in pre-season,” Silva explained.
The manager added that he enjoyed his four months in the Premier League, adding that it was a target for him career-wise. Steve Bruce and Mike Phelan are recent managers of the side. It seems Silva would join the history books as well. He would likely have offers elsewhere.
Their rivals based in Wales, Swansea City won the relegation battle as they defeated Sunderland. The pressure in the last five games was much but they delivered to remain in the top flight.
