Sanchez Flores will reportedly be informed of owner Gino Pozzo’s decision during a meeting at the club’s training ground on Sunday.

Watford currently sits bottom of the Premier League, with only eight points from their first 14 games following a 2-1 defeat to 19th-place Southampton on Saturday — a game the Hornets led after 77 minutes.

Sanchez Flores was hired by Watford on Sept. 7, replacing fellow Spaniard Javi Gracia following a 0W-1D-3L start to the 2019-20 season. Sanchez Flores’ second stint as Watford boss will have lasted just 85 days and seen him win just one of the 10 games he managed (1W-4D-5L).
