Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores in regular dialogue with club’s owners

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores says he is in regular dialogue with the club’s owners in a bid to oversee an upturn in results at the beleaguered Premier League side.

Sanchez Flores was reported in the national media as being on the brink of losing his job earlier this week, but Sky Sports News understands the club is fully behind the Spaniard at this stage of the season.

Watford, who challenged for a place in Europe and reached the FA Cup final last season, sit bottom of the league after just one win from Flores’ nine league matches since he was re-appointed in September.

“I am speaking every week with the owners and sporting director,” Sanchez Flores said.

“All of us are trying to find good solutions for the squad and the team. But in this kind of situation all of us look worse. The players, the coach, the club, the owners, everyone. Even the fans feel worse, of course.”

Watford visit Southampton, who sit one point above them, on Saturday in a pivotal encounter and Sanchez Flores says he knew his side would struggle when he took charge.

“When I accepted to come here I knew that we were going to suffer. This is what we are doing,” he said.

“But it is part of the plan. You need to suffer first if you want to get to a different step, different level.”

Sanchez Flores, who is one of several managers believed to be facing an uncertain future, insists it is a “big mistake” to just focus on his position.

He added: “You are talking about the happiness of a lot of people. This is the most important thing. The happiness of the fans, the future of the club, the future of the squad.”

“Convincing people when they are down is difficult,” he said.
