Breaking: Sevilla Sack Manager Ahead Of Man United Showdown In Europa League

Before facing Manchester United in the club’s Europa League quarterfinal, Sevilla has fired head coach Jorge Sampaoli.

The Spanish team defeated Fenerbahce to advance to the round of eight, although they presently occupy the 14th spot, two points above the relegation zone, after suffering a 2-0 loss at Getafe on Sunday in Sampaoli’s final league match as manager.

The 2-0 loss to fellow strugglers Getafe on Sunday was the last straw for Sampaoli, who had just returned to management in October for the second time.

Sevilla have won just twice in their past seven La Liga matches, losing four games in that run.

“Sevilla have terminated the contract of coach Jorge Sampaoli after the team’s defeat in Getafe, which has once again placed the team on the verge of relegation places. The fact that the team has not managed to get out of the lowest positions in the table since his incorporation as a coach and the image offered in the last matches of the team has led the club to make this decision, in search of a reaction in the 12 games that remain in the league. Sevilla thanks Sampaoli for his services and wishes him the best of luck in his future,” read the Sevilla statement.

Jose Luis Mendilibar is set to be appointed by Sevilla ahead of taking training later on Tuesday.
