BBC Sport Quique Sanchez Flores’ final game as Watford manager was an entertaining draw with Sunderland at Vicarage Road.

TelegraphOutgoing Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores feels his job was “complete” after guiding the club to Premier League safety this season.

Independent Quique Sanchez Flores, the outgoing Watford manager, paid tribute to the “unbelievable” Vicarage Road fans – but told his successor that all the ingredients are there to replicate if not improve on the club’s best season for 29 years.

BHappy image In the end, there’s not an awful lot left to say. This final day – but for Spurs’ hilarious ineptitude in Newcastle – was a dead rubber all round, and at Vicarage Road no less than anywhere. The club had even taken the step of confirming what we had kinda known was coming by making the end-of-season announcement as if this fixture had been forgotten about, someone left in the pub as it was locked up and shut down since everyone had forgotten that it had gone to use the loo. It was clearly the right thing to do, providing the platform for a noisy send-off rather than, as might have transpired, a bitter end-of-season catastrophe to add to the growing catalogue of the Pozzo era… but either way, Sunderland had done their thing and were similarly inconvenienced to the extent that they made nine changes and afforded two debuts. The Hornets’ line-up contained few surprises, prompting a brief cheer from ig who argued that anything other than the bloody-minded defiance that has characterised the end of Flores’ spell in charge would be wholly unfitting. Cathcart at right-back again? Of course he is.
