Coach Flores led Atlético Madrid to win the UEFA Europa League in the 2009-2010 season, and also won the UEFA Super Cup the following year.

In 2018, he negotiated with the Korea Football Association as a candidate for the Korean national soccer team’s head coach, making his name known to domestic fans. 스포츠토토맨
