Quique Sanchez Flores willl leave his post after Watford's final league on Sunday

Quique Sanchez Flores will leave his managerial post at Watford after one year in charge.

Sanchez Flores has done a great job a cementing Watford’s position in England’s top flight, with the Hornets currently in 13th place.

He also led Watford to an FA Cup semi-final before losing to Crystal Palace. However this does not appear to be enough to convince owners that Sanchez Flores is the right person to lead them into the new season.

A club statement reads: “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.”

Watford started the season in great form winning eight of their opening 17 Premier League matches, and they moved within one point of the Champions League qualification places.

However their second half of the season has been a contrast as they have struggled for consistency and have won only four league matches.

Sanchez Floress said that the club and he had “different points of views” moving the club forward, but he had a lot of “happy memories this season.”
