Fulham manager Marco Silva addressed the media following his side’s 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

“Great win for us, definitely,” Marco began. “Important one and well deserved I think.

“Overall looking for the game, I think we were the best team on the pitch.”

Marco offered a deep—dive into Fulham’s performance, stating: “Overall looking for the game, I think we were the best team on the pitch. We were much better in the first half.

“The reaction from Bournemouth in the second half was really good.

“The way we played first half, the way we scored two goals.

“We created more chances, we had one with Willian as well, the one-v-one with Neto, the one with Robinson as well.

“We created more chances to score more goals and kill the game.

“The first goal from them could have boosted their confidence of course and ccreated a different scenario for us.

“It was crucial that we scored the third goal straight away. It was a great assist from Willian, great finishing from Rodrigo as well.

“I would like to control the ball a lot more in the second-half but it was not possible. Credit to Bournemouth as well.”

The man of the moment was of course, Rodrigo Muniz, who followed up his first Premier League goal last week by scoring a double against Bournemouth.

“I’m really pleased for him,” said Marco. “He deserves this.

“When you have the chance to step in, you have to pop up. When the chance is there, you have to show your quality.

“The performance this afternoon was probably his best so far in a Fulham shirt. He deserves it, he’s been working really hard.

“It’s important now that he keeps working hard and for myself, it’s important that I keep developing him as a football player.”

A lot of the questions in the press conference centred around Armando Broja, who started from the bench this afternoon, with Rodrigo given the nod ahead of our new number nine following his goal last weekend.

When asked whether this was a good test for Armando to fight for his place, Marco responded: “I spoke with him about this situation yesterday. This is the Premier League.

“It’s important to have him with us. He’s a player we looked at last summer as well.

“He knows being in the Premier League that he is going to have competition for places.

“He arrived only last week and against Burnley, another striker scored an important goal and had a good impact on that game.

“If Rodrigo is going to have another good week and Armando is going to have another good week, then it’s perfect for us.

“Football players are not stupid. They can understand decisions and one way you can deal with the situation is to work hard and show that they are better than the others who are playing.”
