Quique Sanchez Flores will stay as manager of Spanish team Espanyol following interest in him from English club Stoke

BARCELONA, Spain — Quique Sanchez Flores will stay as coach of Spanish team Espanyol following interest in him from English club Stoke.

Stoke is looking for a new manager after firing Mark Hughes last weekend, with the team in the Premier League's relegation zone.

Asked at a news conference Saturday whether he would be leaving for Stoke, Sanchez Flores says "I am the coach of Espanyol and I will be."

Flores spent the 2015-16 season in the Premier League with Watford.
