Fulham boss Silva: Muniz ready for Man Utd trip

Fulham manager Marco Silva is eagerly awaiting their club's away trip to Old Trafford.

The Cottagers had a poor experience at Manchester United last season, capitulating in an FA Cup encounter despite being in control of the game at one stage.

However, Silva is focusing on getting his players firing, and he spoke about forward Rodrigo Muniz.

He told reporters: “Rodrigo got his chance and stepped in and showed his quality.

“He's had spells in the season where he hasn't scored, or injuries have stopped his run but now he's playing well and I'm really happy for him."

On playing United, he added: “One thing is clear for me they are more confident.

“When you achieve, all the teams, all the players, they need good results to be more confident.

“They have many, many top players that can decide the game in any moment of the game and it's going to be really challenging for us.

“I think we're going to be ready for it. I assure you that you're going to be ready for it and we have to go to give them a really competitive climate to fight for the three points."
