Reports in Spain today are suggesting that former Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores would like to one day return to manage in the Premier League.
AS is reporting that Flores’ time at Espanyol is up and he will depart the La Liga side at the end of the season. The report continues to say Flores would love a return to England, where he managed Watford in the 2015-16 season.
So with Flores looking for a Premier League return, should West Ham take an interest?
The future of David Moyes at the London Stadium is far from secure. The Scottish manager was never a popular choice among the West Ham fans when brought in to replace Slaven Bilic. Whilst he has done well to guide West Ham away from relegation recent results have seen them slip again.
Rumours are rife that Moyes may not be in the West Ham job for the long haul and if he isn’t then Flores would be an excellent choice as the club’s new boss.
The Spaniard has a wealth of experience at clubs such as Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Valencia. During his time at Watford he earned a reputation for playing attractive football and getting the fans off their seat.
His style of play is exactly what West Ham fans would like to see at the club and he is certainly a big enough name to draw exciting new recruits to the London Stadium.
A calming influence, Flores could be the perfect man to steady the ship should West Ham decide to ditch Moyes and start afresh in the new season.
No doubt the 53-year-old will be in high demand come June, so West Ham would need to swoop quickly if this was the case.
But if Moyes is given the boot, there are few better options for the West Ham job than Quique Sanchez Flores.
