Quique Sanchez Flores claims he is feeling no pressure about Watford’s current situation and that he believes he is definitely the right man for the job.

Since arriving at Vicarage Road for a second spell in charge of the club, the 54-year-old has been unable to lift the Hornets from the bottom of the Premier League table, where they remain the only club yet to have won a game.

Ahead of this weekend’s match against Sheffield United, the boss said he was simply focusing on his responsibilities.

“I don’t have pressure. Sorry, I don’t feel pressure,” said Sanchez Flores.

“I feel responsibility, this is the word. I’m happy here, happy in my home, happy everywhere I can be. It’s not about how much pressure I have. I feel good, I feel perfect.

“I assume all the results of the team since the beginning of the season because this is the situation we are living now, but I can’t assume anymore. Now is the next match, it’s how we can prepare, how we can play, we have many parts of the match against Arsenal or against Swansea when the team was playing well so this is what we need to do - to repeat the training again, again, again, to improve and try to do well.

“I believe a lot. I know how the victory can change the mentality of everyone, so we are looking, we are working in the way we can find the solution and the solution is to win because it’s the only thing that can change the morale of the players, but it’s not a drama.

“Now it’s a bad situation, it’s a bad start, but it’s not drama. I refuse to train or to go to the match thinking this is a drama. This is not a message for the fans. The fans want to know that we’re ready, that we believe in everything and that we are able to win. This is what they want to hear and what I believe.”

Although he refused to label the Hornets’ current situation as a ‘drama’ Sanchez Flores did acknowledge that their position is somewhat invidious and said he has been working on improving the players’ mental health as part of his training.

The head coach described the club’s upcoming matches as ‘finals’ and said that positivity and confidence are both required to help his team improve.

“We are not preparing matches, we’re preparing finals, it’s like this,” he said.

“I’m really happy with the response of the players in the training grounds. There’s two different things we’re training with - the muscles and the tactics is one thing and then mental health is another thing, so we need to prepare the brain to prepare to train this muscle because it’s the main muscle right now.

“I think the players they want to train very hard, they know they need to try harder if they want to improve but all of us are conscious of the situation. It’s not good at the moment, we know but the positive things is that we have many many matches to play.

“Many finals, so we have chances. At the moment, if we can get a good result, we are able to change the situation, but we need to win.

“This is the first opportunity we have this week, we know the opponent is very tough, really confident, they are really good, but I think we have the necessary players and the necessary squad to win.

“Now you need to care and you need to train the brain of the player because we are in other times and they are really sensible. They go down really easy but they can go up really easy too.”
