London - Officials are often made out to be the villains of the piece when it comes to any sport, but Watford's Spanish manager Quique Sanchez Flores says he loves the high-quality refereeing in the Premier League.
Spanish football is too stop-start for the 50-year-old's liking and he appreciates the way English referees let the game flow, the manager told the BBC ahead of his team's visit to Bournemouth on Saturday.
"The style in Spain is different: stop game, stop game. In England it's quick, quick. I'm very happy with the style," said Sanchez Flores who managed Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Getafe before taking the Watford job in June.
"If it's not a strong foul, carry on."
