Silva's comments come after Maguire produced an outstanding performance that in his sides 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday. With Hull teetering above the drop zone, Maguire's solid outing helped earn his side a valuable point against the Saints.
'That performance is no surprise to me, because he's played like that and been improving for a while now,' said Silva to The Daily Mail.
'He's a very good player, he works hard and is understanding better what I want for the team and he's understanding better our organisation as well.
"He has very good skills and it's clear to me he will have a big career in the future."
Maguire will need to put on another stellar performance when Hull face the already relegated Sunderland on Saturday.
