Sevilla sack Jorge Sampaoli after just five months of appointment
Jorge Sampaoli sacked by Sevilla after 31 games in charge & ahead of Europa League tie vs Man Utd.
Sevilla have sacked their second manager of the season, with Jorge Sampaoli departing for a second time.
The Argentinean manager succeeded Julen Lopetegui in October and was able to achieve steady advancements through the end of February.
A perfect 2023 home record was ended by Osasuna, after which Sevilla won twice and lost on three occasions.
Sampaoli managed 31 games in all, with 13 victories, 6 draws, and 12 defeats. While Sampaoli managed to get them through PSV Eindhoven and Fenerbahce in the Europa League, where they now play Manchester United, they were defeated by Osasuna in the Copa del Rey.
- OFFICIAL: Sevilla appoints Jorge Sampaoli as their new head coach.
- Bryan Gil returns to Sevilla on loan from Tottenham
- OFFICIAL: Julen Lopetegui has been sacked as manager of Sevilla.
Sevilla emphasized the picture presented in recent games as well as the fact that they have not climbed the table since his appointment.
Valencia and Almeria, who are also in the relegation zone with 26 points, are two points below Sevilla.
Sevilla has chosen to make a change during the final international break before the conclusion of the season because they are desperate to avoid relegation with 12 games left and because his tactics are being questioned by the players.
Former Eibar manager Jose Luis Mendilibar is the favourite to take over, with former Valencia manager Jose Bordalas also in the running to succeed the 63-year-old.
