‘April Fools’ news’ could mean good chance for Southampton to land manager



Right after the English press claimed Marco Silva may be on the verge of returning to Benfica, the Lisbon side were quickly feeding the Portuguese press to dismiss the rumours.
Newspapers A Bola, O Jogo and Record all have claims today saying there’s been no contact between the Eagles and the former Watford manager.
The club source who spoke to Record referred to it as ‘April fools’ news’, especially because manager Rui Vitória is not expected to be sacked anytime soon. It may all be a denial to avoid disruption to Benfica’s season, but the response came pretty quickly.
This could come as very interesting news for Southampton, who sacked manager Mauricio Pellegrino last night.

With Southampton looking for a new boss, Marco Silva’s name emerged as one of the candidates for the job, along with the likes of Mark Hughes and Slaven Bilic.
Record still claims that although Silva looks for a ‘new project’, this new job shouldn’t be in Portugal. They seem pretty convinced that after moving his career to England, the manager wouldn’t like to go back to his home country.
A Bola think the same, and believe Silva is likelier to find his next job in English football, rather than in Portugal.
That can only be good news for any Southampton interest.
