Espanyol reassure Sanchez Flores

Espanyol have no plans to dismiss Coach Quique Sanchez Flores despite fan unrest amidst the club sinking to 16th in La Liga.

The former Spain international signed a three-year contract at the Catalan club in the summer of 2016 and despite guiding the club to 8th in the league last season, the current campaign has proved more difficult.

Monday night’s home defeat in a Catalan derby with Girona brought whistles and white handkerchiefs from the home fans but owner Chen Yansheng is ‘calm’, according to Marca.

Despite losing four of their last five outings, there is still ‘trust’ in the 52-year-old’s leadership of the club, despite his side netting a league low of 11 goals in 15 matches.
