Cape Town - Hull City manager Marco Silva will decide on his future at the relegated club at a meeting with the owners on Wednesday after his side ended their Premier League campaign with a pitiful 7-1 home loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Hull's impressive home league record under Silva, who replaced Mike Phelan in January, came undone as they buckled under pressure to lose three of their last five league matches to confirm their relegation to the Championship.

"I will talk to the owners on Wednesday then I will speak to the players and the fans," Silva told reporters after the game.

"I need to think and see what is the best solution, not only for the club, but for me as a coach and for my career. The next days will be important."

"I need to decide. The club needs to know and start to do things differently to last summer."

Silva thanked Hull's fans for their support throughout his reign as they serenaded him following Sunday's game, despite the poor result.

"Big respect to the fans. They support me, my staff, the players and the club, since my first game I ask for them to come to make our stadium difficult for the opponent and they have been fantastic," Silva added.
