Watford sack Flores
Watford have had a torrid start to the 2019/20 campaign.
The Hornets began the season with Javi Gracia as their head coach.
But after a poor start to the season from Gracia, Watford decided to put their faith in an old boss to try and stave off relegation.
However, Quique Sanchez Flores had a dismal second spell with Watford, which saw the Spaniard win just one of his 10 league ties this term.
And after Watford were dealt another defeat by fellow relegation battlers Southampton on Saturday evening, it seems the club’s higher-ups ran out of patience with Flores.
Watford would confirm on Sunday afternoon that Flores has left the club.
The Hornets’ Chairman & CEO Scott Duxbury had this to say on the incident:
“Quique is a man of great integrity and it was clear how much he wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately results have dictated our decision.
“The appointment of a new Head Coach is imminent, and with nearly two-thirds of the season remaining, we will provide all the support necessary to make the coming months successful.” As quoted by Watford’s official website.

Hughton to Watford?
Watford are now six points away from safety. And should Everton and Aston Villa get results later today, that gap will be extended further.
So, Watford really need to choose their next managerial appointment carefully.
And according to The Guardian, one man Watford could give the job to is former Brighton boss, Chris Hughton.
As per The Guardian, Watford are believed to have started interviewing candidates last week and it is thought that Hughton has a good chance of being given the job.
