Balague: Espanyol boss Quique Sanchez Flores gives Stoke deadline

Sánchez Flores to stay at Espanyol despite Stoke interest Quique Sanchez Flores rules himself out of vacant Stoke job

Flores is understood to be the leading contender to succeed Mark Hughes after Stoke had to abandon their hopes of luring Gary Rowett away from Derby after he signed a new contract with the Championship promotion hopefuls.

Flores explained his decision during a press conference for Espaynol today. "I belong to Espanyol".

The Ireland manager also met with Stoke officials this week and appeared to be the front runner for the role, in a deal that would also see assistant Roy Keane move with him, before Sanchez Flores jumped ahead of him in the reckoning. He said, "I'm here and at no point have I said the opposite". We are happy, we have many things that make us feel like that.

Martin O'Neill is the other name in the frame but, contrary to previous plans, he attended the Soccer Writers' Association of Ireland annual awards banquet in Dublin on Friday night, suggesting he expects to remain as Republic of Ireland manager.

Masako Nozawa, the voice actress behind Goku , and theme song singer Takayoshi Tanimoto were also at the event. This was announced on Twitter after the two had a week of amicable trash talking on the social media site.


"I'm well and quite happy with my situation", the 52-year-old Spaniard added.

Although Flores was believed to have been the preferred option, the Stoke hierarchy value O'Neill's vast experience in Premier League management.

Stoke sacked Hughes last Saturday after a 2-1 FA Cup defeat at League Two Coventry and a run of seven losses in 10 Premier League games. The Potters, who now sit 18th in the Premier League table, face Manchester United on Monday night.
