Watch: Silva encourages Cottagers to go for title in post-promotion team talk

22 April 2022

Fulham sealed promotion from the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday evening in a 3-0 victory over Preston North End.

Cottagers boss Marco Silva delivered a motivational team talk to his players in the dressing room after the West Londoners bounced back to the top-flight.

And Silva's side have now set their sights on the title with the 44-year-old encouraging his team to clinch the top spot and go up as champions.

"You felt from the first day that things were going the right way," he said, addressing his players. "The way you were doing everything - the way you are matching all the opposition sides, the way you are enjoying and the way you are working was to finish the way you did it.

"Like I said to you, on 31 January when the market finished, we kept most of you - just one player left. You felt, in that moment, they would not stop us. I'm proud of you and everything we've done.

"This is the last step to get what you deserve. We have to finish this season as champions."
