Talk of Watford sacking Quique Sanchez Flores is ludicrousby Jack Kitson / 20 April 2016, 09:46Tweet
It's not unusual for The Daily Mail to churn out ludicrous posts on an hourly basis, but their latest article concerning the future of Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores really takes the biscuit.
The article - found here - reports (with no sources) that the Spaniard's job is on the line following a disappointing run of form in 2016, which has seen the club win just three Premier League games this calendar year.
The article speculates that the club's hierarchy - which in truth doesn't have the best of reputations in dealing with managers - have been left unimpressed at how Flores has dealt with the decline in form.
While recent results haven't been brilliant, the fact is that the Hornets remain 12th in the table, just three points adrift of the top-half and last year's champions Chelsea, who sit 10th.
If anything, Flores is paying the price for overachieving, having all but carried out his main objective of keeping the club in the top-flight, with his troops a sizeable 11 points above the dreaded drop zone with five games remaining.
Furthermore, Flores and his squad have an FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace to look forward to on Saturday. A win would send the Hertfordshire club into only their second ever Final - they finished runners-up to Everton in 1983/84 - while they are priced at 5/1 (Betfair) to go on and hoist the famous trophy for the first time in their history.
