Watford have confirmed the departure of first team coach, Quique Sanchez Flores at the end of the season.
The Spaniard arrived at the club last summer ahead of their Premier League season and has safely secured their position in the top-flight. Watford were one of the standout performers in the opening half of the season and were pushing for a Europa League spot. But their form has stuttered since the turn of the year and they have the fourth-worst Premier League form in 2016.They’ve managed just four wins in 18 matches and despite leading them to an FA semi-final, owner Gino Pozzo has decided to replace the manager this summer. The Hornets have one game remaining in the Premier League, which is now confirmed as being the Spaniard’s final match with the club..However, the 51-year-old’s future has been under scrutiny in recent times, with the club’s form tailing off in the second half of the campaign.
A statement from the club’s website read thus; ‘WATFORD FOOTBALL CLUB can confirm that Quique Sanchez Flores will leave Vicarage Road at the end of the season following the Sunderland game this weekend’.We would like to thank Quique. He and the team achieved the target set them at the start of the season of staying in the Premier League for a second year.Quique leaves with all our best wishes for the future and the knowledge he is always welcome at Vicarage Road.
