† Appearances (goals)

Marco Alexandre Saraiva da Silva (born 12 July 1977) is a former Portuguese footballer who played as a right back, and the current manager of Greek club Olympiacos FC.

His career is mainly associated to Estoril, as a player and manager. He also coached Sporting for one season, winning the 2014–15 Portuguese Cup.

Playing career

Born in Lisbon, Silva finished his formation with local C.F. Os Belenenses. During a 15-year professional career he only appeared in two Primeira Liga games, one with that club and another with S.C. Campomaiorense; from 2000 to 2005 he alternated between the second and third divisions, representing C.D. Trofense, Rio Ave FC, S.C. Braga B, S.C. Salgueiros and Odivelas FC.

In the 2005 off-season Silva joined G.D. Estoril Praia in the second level, where he remained until his retirement six years later,[1][2][3] always in that category.[4][5]

Silva played his last match on 2 January 2011, a 0–1 home loss against F.C. Penafiel for the campaign's League Cup. He retired in June at the age of nearly 34, amassing division two totals of 152 games and eight goals for three different clubs.

Managerial career

Estoril

On 10 June 2011, immediately after retiring, Silva was appointed director of football at Estoril. However, early into the season, he replaced Vinícius Eutrópio as manager,[6] with the Cascais team ranking tenth in the second tier.[7] His first game in charge was a 1–3 defeat at Penafiel,[8] and, after losing only three matches in 24, he helped the club return to the top flight after seven years, as champions.[9] He ultimately was chosen the league's Manager of the Year.[10]

Silva made his debut in the Portuguese top division on 17 August 2012, in a 1–2 away defeat to S.C. Olhanense.[11] Estoril overachieved for a second best-ever fifth place in the table, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Europa League, also a first. Highlights included not losing any of the games against Sporting Clube de Portugal (3–1 at home, 2–2 away[12]), and drawing at S.L. Benfica 1–1.[13]

On 23 February 2014, Estoril achieved an historic first time win at the Estádio do Dragão, the 1–0 victory being FC Porto's first home defeat since the 2–3 against Leixões S.C. in 2008.[14] He left his position on 12 May, after leading his team to the fourth position.[15]

Sporting

Silva agreed to a four-year contract with Sporting on 21 May 2014, replacing Leonardo Jardim who left for AS Monaco FC.[16] He led the club to the third place in the championship, also winning the Taça de Portugal by beating S.C. Braga 3–1 on penalties after a 2–2 draw in the final.[17] This was Sporting's first piece of silverware since the 2008 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira.

On 4 June 2015, four days after winning the trophy, Sporting announced that Silva had been sacked with just cause,[18][19] for not wearing the club's official suit in a cup match against F.C. Vizela.[20]

Olympiacos

On 8 July 2015, Silva was appointed the successor of countryman Vítor Pereira at Olympiacos FC, signing on a two-year contract.[21] His first competitive game occurred in the season opener in the Superleague Greece, won 3–0 against Panionios FC. On 17 September, he played his first UEFA Champions League match, losing 0–3 at home to FC Bayern Munich.[22]

Silva subsequently guided the club to break the record of 11 consecutive league wins from the first matchday,[23][24] also recording a 3–2 success at Arsenal in the Champions League group stage.[25] The Piraeus side's run of domestic wins ended at 17, a European record in the 21st century,[26] but they nonetheless won a record 43rd title with six games remaining.[27]
