Quique Sanchez Flores quiet on Stoke City job offer

Quique Sanchez Flores quiet on Stoke City job offer

It's understood that Stoke have asked Flores for a final answer by this afternoon.

Club general director Óscar Perarnau and sports director Jordi Lardín have been in the meeting with Flores, although the latter is said to have left at 2pm Spanish time.

The Irishman also has a good relationship with club chairman Peter Coates, but there is a view around the club that O'Neill would be a more short-term appointment to maintain their status, while Flores' style is more what they are looking for in the long term.

Elsewhere in Spain it had been reported this payment may not be necessary.

Quique Sanchez Flores brushed aside questions about his future following Espanyol's Copa del Rey tie on Thursday night after emerging as the favourite to become the next Stoke manager.

"I'm not going to talk about me on such an important day for Espanyol", he told reporters after the match.

In other words, aside from its ridiculous size, The Wall is as close to the ideal new TV as we've seen so far from any brand. It can transform into any size, and delivers incredible brightness, colour gamut, colour volume and black levels.

The 52-year-old, who spent one season in the Premier League with Watford before being replaced in 2016, is said to be the Potters' top target to succeed Mark Hughes. "I want to continue being happy with my profession".

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill (above) is also under consideration.

"Right now we're not thinking about anything other than the game and Sunday's match against Athletic (Bilbao)".

Flores led the newly-promoted side to 13th in the Premier League and the semi-finals of the FA Cup but had his contract terminated at the end of the campaign.

O'Neill and his coaching team agreed contract extensions with the Football Association of Ireland last October. They will be a lucky manager.
