Spotlight back on O'Neill as Flores says no to Stoke


They had set their sights on Sanchez Flores and the former Watford manager was said to be on the brink of a Premier League return.

"Here I have all I need".

Espanyol manager Quique Sanchez Flores has ended rumors linking him to the vacant Stoke City job, announcing that he will still be Espanyol head coach come the end of the season. I am absolutely happy with my situation, I do not have to explain anything else.

"We like the connection (with the club), how they treat us, I like that Espanyol are growing". Football brings up these kind of situations where clubs ask. here at Espanyol it is hard to move someone. We feel good and it is very hard for someone to leave.


Sanchez Flores is expected to fly to England this weekend and complete the formalities that will see his salary vastly increase even before performance-related bonuses, while Stoke have had a delegation in Barcelona for the last few days in order to convince him to take the post.

Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill is now the bookmakers' favourite. I have a contract and I am honest with the club.

The 52-year-old was offered the opportunity to take over from Hughes, who was sacked following Stoke's shock 2-1 defeat to Coventry City in the FA Cup.

Stoke had hoped to have their new manager in place for the Premier League game against Manchester United on Monday, but that now looks unlikely.
