Amid interest from Stoke, Sanchez Flores to stay at Espanyol

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) 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.
