Troy Deeney provides insight into what Fulham manager Marco Silva is like in training

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Troy Deeney has given an insight into Fulham manager Marco Silva and how he used to take training at Watford.

Deeney was talking to Jermain Defoe on their podcast and brought up the Portuguese manager.

All is not well at Fulham right now after a difficult summer transfer window.

Star player Joao Palhinha nearly joined Bayern Munich, while Aleksandar Mitrovic was never properly replaced.

Fulham were linked with several replacements, however, it was decided that the current options in the squad were sufficient.

Whether Palhinha can be reintegrated into the side before Fulham play Luton Town on Saturday.

However, one of the few things Fulham will look towards as a positive is how the club have improved under Marco Silva.

From winning the Championship to finishing in the top half of the Premier League, Silva has shown he can get the very best out of the squad.

Troy Deeney has shared more details on what Silva is like in training that might explain why that could be the case.

The Portuguese is essential to Fulham’s long-term success, which makes his current contract situation even more worrying.

Deeney shares details on Silva in training

Asked if there were any managers at Watford that liked attention from the players, Deeney said: “Marco Silva, Marco loves it. He wants that game-day realism all the time, everybody’s at it.

“He’d just do little things like shooting drills. We just signed Andre Gray for like £18m or something like that.

“And he’d be like, ‘Troy [Deeney], don’t know if you keep up with him you know’ and just walk off.

“He’d just do little things in training to get that intensity up.”

Fulham captain Tom Cairney may wish Silva would take the same approach in training with Fulham’s strikers as he did with Troy Deeney.

For the second time in two seasons, Cairney’s car was nailed by a wayward shot in training by a centre-forward.

Aleksandar Mitrovic might be gone, but Rodrigo Muniz has at least taken over from him in one respect.

Silva has to try and get the best out of a squad that doesn’t appear to have improved on paper from last season.

Another top-ten finish would arguably be an even bigger achievement for the Portuguese coach.
