The Hornets are currently rock-bottom of the Premier League, having drawn one and lost three of their opening four games; they drew 1-1 with Newcastle United last time out following successive losses to Brighton & Hove Albion, Everton and West Ham United.
The Hornets board have subsequently taken action by sacking Gracia, who guided the club to an 11th-placed finish last season as well as to the FA Cup final, though they were beaten 6-0 by Manchester City.
Flores has been appointed as his successor; he managed the club in the 2015/16 campaign as they finished 13th.
This is a bit of a weird one from Watford.
They have not taken a step forward with the reappointment of a manager who took the club to a worse finish than that achieved in 2018/19.
One feels that Gracia deserved some time, particularly after their excellent FA Cup run.

But the club have seen differently and, thus, there is pressure on the club to turn it around.
That is all well and good but their next two games come against Arsenal and City.
Good luck, Quique.
