Silva Unhappy After Cup Exit

share on:

Marco Silva has stated the 2-1 win over Manchester United does not make him happy, as it doesn’t take them to the final of the EFL cup.

The first leg ended 2-0 in favour of United and a penalty goal from Tom Huddlestone before halftime put Hull City back in the game.

However, Pogba equalised and Oumar Niasse’s late goal was not enough to send the tigers to Wembley.

“It was a good win but not enough for our goal,” Silva said. “It is important to win the game but the result in the first leg caused problems for us.

“It was a good performance again, a good attitude and we controlled the game in large periods against a big team.

“It is impossible at this moment to feel really happy. The goal we conceded is not a normal goal, we lost control at the vital moment. It is important that we won the game.

“We have won three games in a row at home and when I arrived we had won once in two months. I congratulated the players in the dressing room.”

Hull have sold Jake Livermore to West Brom and Robert Snodgrass is expected to leave the club imminently, with Silva aiming to be able to add to his squad before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

“I hope to improve the squad with three or four players. We need them,” Silva said.

“We have 15 or 16 players, it’s not normal at this level.”
