Fulham boss Marco Silva: Bruno Lage and I have never faced eachother

Fulham boss Marco Silva is looking forward to facing fellow Portuguese manager Bruno Lage and Wolves this weekend.

Silva faces a fresh challenge on Saturday in the form of Wolves manager Lage.

"It will be the first time we face each other," said Silva. "He is a very good manager and doing a very good job at Wolves. I wish the best for him this season.

"It is up to us to show our good organisation. We will look to create problems for them and match them and get the three points."

Silva also said after Fulham's Championship-winning season last year, there is no need for his squad to worry about being back in the top flight.

He added: "We work so hard and did so many good things last season so it doesn't make sense to play with fear.

"We have to be positive. We are Fulham, we have to believe in ourselves.
