He continued, “I feel that the business is not done yet; we’ve had two great seasons, and the goal is clearly there to sustain this club in the Premier League. This is key for the future of this club, and we are working hard to achieve it.”
Silva also emphasized the importance of trust and support from the owners, saying, “My relationship with them, and with Fulham as a whole, has been really important in this decision and the success of the last two seasons.”
He lauded the commitment and ambition displayed by the players, emphasizing their crucial role in Fulham’s achievements, and expressed gratitude for the unwavering support of the fans. Silva concluded, “Let’s continue together on this long journey.”
