Quique Sanchez Flores: Boss wants entertaining football

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores says his side are “far from what he wants”, despite his side being 13th in the Premier League.  

The Spaniard has quickly adapted to life in the Premier League, and with only 14 goals conceded from 13 games, the Hornets have the joint-seventh best defence in the league.

However, the former Athletico Madrid manager says his side still has room for improvement.

Speaking to The Watford Observer, Flores said: “We are really far from what I want from Watford. I organised Watford quickly but that isn’t the same as saying Watford are playing exactly how I want.

“Sometimes it is harder to organise the big teams than it is to organise the smaller teams. It is difficult because you have different tools.

“If you are strict and you want to defend and attack in certain ways it takes a long time.

“Normally when Watford win we don’t have a lot of the ball. This season the ball possession doesn’t belong to the team who has the ball. I don’t know why. Leicester City are winning every week without having the ball.

“I don’t like to tell the players that today in the match we are going to run without the ball. It is boring for me. It is boring for the fans and it is bad for the atmosphere at the ground.”

Flores insists that he is enjoying life in England since is arrival in the summer, and claims that it is “completely different” to Spain.

“We love our profession, and if you love this profession then there are more reasons to love it in England. It is completely different to Spain. I repeat. Complete different. You are able to love everything in England.

“The way we are talking now is amazing. To come to the press conferences is good. It isn’t the best day of the week but it is good. You respect and transmit information to each other. I want to know hear you and you want to hear from me.

“You are not only interested about what is happening tomorrow. You want to know about a lot of things. I am not teaching things to you. I am just learning different experiences.”
