Spotlight back on O'Neill as Flores says no to Stoke

Quique Sanchez Flores has said no to the chance of a Premier League return

Rumors have circulated in the past week following the dismissal of Mark Hughes, that Flores was reportedly close to agreeing a 5-year deal at the bet365 stadium, however it now seems that Stoke will now have to turn their elsewhere.

"My instinct is that the proposal is so interesting plus the fact that Espanyol have not kept their promise from when Quique first arrived suggests to me that will announce his depature from Espanyol".

However the name that appeared at the top of the clubs wanted list was Espanol manager Quique Sánchez Flores.

Flores was successful in the Premier League with Watford in 2016 and he managed to secure a mid-table position for the newly promoted club. "I am the coach and will be", he said.

'We feel happy. We are in a happy place and we don't want to break that up'.

"I live in a big city, in one of the best leagues, and I have reason to be happy and not to live anxious".

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

The 52-year-old was offered the opportunity to take over from Hughes, who was sacked following Stoke's shock 2-1 defeat to Coventry City in the FA Cup. The Potters, who now sit 18th in the Premier League table, face Manchester United on Monday night.
