Well-placed sources have this morning described the story in a national newspaper to us as “complete nonsense” and urged Watford fans to “ignore it” and “use the siege mentality” to roar the team to victory on Sunday,

With most national media outlets reporting Sanchez Flores could struggle to hang onto his job following an end of season review, agents will be working behind the scenes to put their clients in the frame for what would be a plum Premier League job.

Bielsa, 60, has coached Argentina, Chile, Athletic Bilbao and Espanyol but has been out of work since leaving Marseille in August 2015.
