Marco Silva was most recently manager of Watford FC in the Premier League.
Prior to his appointment at Vicarage Road, Silva spent a season at Hull City where his reputation was actually enhanced despite the fact the Tigers were relegated to the Championship. He was a sought-after man.
The fact he had offers on the table from Watford, Crystal Palace and Porto speaks volumes for the transformative and troubleshooting effect he had during his time at Hull.
Before coming to England to manage, Silva was in charge of Greek side Olympiakos and Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.
