Quique Sanchez Flores’ future as Watford boss hanging by a thread
Quique Sanchez Flores’ potential as Watford boss is hanging by a thread following a fifth Premier League defeat in his 10 matches accountable.
The team are understood to be at his place and over whether he should continue, a choice could be made as early as Sunday.
Watford were defeated 2-1 by Southampton at St Mary’s after going 1-0 up, albeit via a VAR mistake, and it had been their eighth Premier League defeat of the campaign. It keeps them bottom of this branch.
Asked whether he’d still be at the helm when they see high-flying Leicester on Wednesday, the Spaniard said:”I’m not convinced. I’m completely apart (from) these sort of choices.”
He will have lasted just 85 days at the function, having replaced the sacked Javi Gracia after the team’s disastrous start to the effort on September 7 if he loses his job for another time on Sunday.
Form has hardly picked up, while picking up a stage every against Tottenham, Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Newcastle and Arsenal, and they’ve defeated just Norwich off in the league.
Sanchez Flores, who led Watford to an FA Cup semi-final within his first spell in charge, added St Mary’s:”When I can not help the team, I am sad for that; I’m sad for those fans, the players, that the operator and the future of this club, naturally.”
