“This Sunday will be my last match at the Calderon (stadium),” Sanchez Flores said at a news conference on Saturday.

Sanchez Flores guided Atletico to victory in the Europa League and a runners-up spot in the King’s Cup last season but they have failed to live up to expectations this term and the best they can hope for is a place in next season’s Europa League.

With two matches left, they are in seventh, Spain’s last European qualification berth, on 52 points, three ahead of eighth-placed Espanyol.

A former Real Madrid and Valencia defender who was also capped by Spain, Sanchez Flores replaced Abel Resino in October 2009.
