Another day....another Sanchez!

The odds on Quique Flores Sanchez becoming the next Leeds Head Coach have been slashed.
According to Sky Bet Flores-Sanchez, currently boss of Espanyol in his native Spain is now third favourite behind compatriot Victor Sanchez and Alan Parker
Flores-Sanchez is no stranger to English football having managed Watford in the Premier League for one season in 2015/16. He guided the Hornets to a mid-table finish and a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, where they defeated us in the Fifth Round 1-0 at Vicarage Road, albeit with the huge fortune of a Scott Wootton own goal.
Somewhat surprisingly Watford let him leave last summer and he returned to Spain last season where he guided Barcelona's "other club" Espanyol into eighth position in La Liga.
Although Quique would be far more warmly received than his semi-namesake Victor, he is just one-year into a three-year contract with "Los Parakeets" so maybe we shouldn't build our hopes up just yet?
Meanwhile two other names linked with the job appear to be way-off the mark.
Claudio Ranieri appears to be on his way to Nantes, French media reports suggest the 64-year-old title winner with Leicester City is close to agreeing a deal with them.
As for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, BBC West Yorkshire Sport claim that a club source have ruled him out of the running
