Watford - Quique Sánchez Flores

Following the sacking of Javi Gracia, Quique Sánchez Flores has been reappointed to the managerial position at Watford F.C. It is familiar territory for Quique as this will be the Spaniard's second stint with the club having overseen their first season back in the top flight in the 2015/16 campaign. He is a well-travelled manager having managed 12 clubs in five countries over a coaching career spanning almost two decades. Quique was born in Madrid in 1965 and, before making the move into management, he enjoyed an excellent playing career in the country.

A right-back by trade, Quique made his first tentative steps into the world of football with Pegaso Tres Cantos, a youth team in his native Madrid. His rapid progression under the club's supervision was quickly recognised and, before he had even signed his first professional contract, he was selected for the under 18 Spanish national team for whom he made nine appearances.

After impressing on the international youth stage, Quique was the subject of interest from Valencia, who played their football in the Segunda Division at the time. Although still very young, Quique featured prominently for Valencia right from the off - with him on the right-hand side of their defence, they were promoted back to La Liga in the 1985/86 season. Following their promotion, Quique - who took very well to his first taste of top-flight football - maintained his place in the starting eleven and the club finished in a highly respectable 14th place. For his remaining eight years with the club, Valencia finished in the top seven places, without exception.

Following this spell at Valencia, the club where he was regarded as a highly-esteemed fan favourite, Quique joined Spanish giant Real Madrid. Here, he played 63 times over two seasons, winning La Liga in the first. He finished his career with a brief spell at fellow La Liga side Zaragoza before hanging up his boots. As well as 344 domestic league appearances, Quique played 15 times for Spain and won an under 21 European Championship on the international stage, too.

Initially, Quique took charge of Real Madrid Castilla, the youth team of the Spaniard's former club. After this, he moved on to Getafe for a season before triumphantly returning to the club that was so close to his heart: Valencia. Here he stayed for two years before moving to the Portuguese club, Benfica. It was here that he won the first of his six trophies as a manager, the Taça da Liga in the 2008/09 season.

After this stint with Spain's Iberian neighbours, Quique returned to his homeland to take charge of Atlético Madrid. It was here that he enjoyed arguably the most successful years of his managerial career to date. In two seasons with the club, Quique won the Europa League at the climax of the 2009/10 season, defeating Fulham 2-1 after extra time in the final in Hamburg.

After leaving Madrid, Quique moved to the Middle East to manage Al-Ahlim then Al-Ain. With both clubs, he won the UAE President's Cup as well as at the UAE League Cup with Al Ahli in his first season. After returning to Spain with Getafe, a spell which was, by all accounts, disastrous, Quique moved to England with Watford. He did very well in his first season, achieving what was then their highest ever league finish in 13th. To many commentators' shock, he was sacked by the board at the end of the campaign.

He then moved to Espanyol for two seasons. His first campaign was steady, but in the second he was relieved of his duties following a poor run of form. He then moved to China with Shanghai Shenhua. He left of his own accord a little over six months later.

Now, he has returned to Watford for a second stint with the London club. Although he did well in his first season with the Hornets, it is widely regarded as s strange move by the Watford hierarchy. He will be hoping to prove his doubters wrong and improve on the 11th place finish and run to the FA Cup Final that they achieved last season.
