WATFORD MANAGER QUIQUE Sanchez Flores will part company with the Premier League side after Sunday’s final match of the season against Sunderland.

The former Valencia, Benfica and Atletico Madrid boss Flores succeeded Slavisa Jokanovic last June ahead of Watford’s top-flight return and has steered them comfortably clear of relegation trouble.

He was named Premier League Manager of the Month in December and led the Hornets to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, defeating Arsenal before being beaten 1-0 by Crystal Palace at Wembley last month.

Their league form has suffered a relative collapse since the turn of the year, with four wins from 18 outings in 2016.

A statement on Watford’s official website read: “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.”
