Sanchez Flores ‘favourite’ for Espanyol

Espanyol are reported to have met Quique Sanchez Flores over the Coach’s role and he is the favourite, though a sporting director will be confirmed first.

AS says the former Watford trainer and the Catalan club had dinner over the weekend, though Espanyol deny the meeting as they don’t want anything to happen that might cause the agreement with Sanchez Flores to collapse.

First, however, Angel Gomez will be confirmed as sporting director and Gomez has been considering options to replace Constantin Galca, with Sanchez Flores looking like beating Paco Jemez and Jorge Sampaoli to the job.

New signings are also being considered, with Miguel Alfonso Herrero, a midfielder on loan at Oviedo from Guangzho R & F and Sevilla’s Nico Pareja, made available by the Europa League winners, on the agenda.
