Espanyol offer Quique Sanchez Flores support

Espanyol have given reassurances to boss Quique Sanchez Flores over his future at the club, according to a report.

After unrest amongst the club’s fans, it is reported by Spanish daily Marca that the Catalan club have given former Watford boss Flores a vote of confidence.

Flores signed a three-year deal with the club in the summer of 2016 and guided them to an impressive 8th place finish last season.

However, results this season have been less than impressive and their latest which saw them lose 1-0 to Girona at the weekend has seen them drop to 16th in the league standings.

Monday night’s game saw the club’s fans display their emotion through whistles and white handkerchiefs, but club owner Chen Yansheng has reportedly reassured Flores over his position and is now looking at the transfer window in January to improve their squad.

Espanyol have lost four out of their last five games and have scored the least amount of goals in the process, with 11 in 15 games.

Leading into the winter break, Flores prepares his side for a visit to Las Palmas, before hosting Diego Simeone’s unbeaten Atletico Madrid.
