Quique Sanchez Flores will depart Watford for the second time in his career just 12 games into his return following his side’s defeat to Southampton.
Flores replaced Javi Gracia in the Vicarage Road dugout in September but only managed two victories, with only one coming in the Premier League.
The Hornets are rock bottom of the Premier League, six points adrift of safety, with Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Southampton appearing to have proved the final straw for Flores.
