A year ago, when they announced their agreement with Jorge Sampaoli, they thought they had found the man who would lead them for years to come.
Less than twelve months later, the Argentine coach is already gone, tempted by the challenge and honour to work at his country’s national team.
Sevilla had to find a new coach, and it didn’t take them that long.
Sevilla and Eduardo Berizzo have reached an agreement in principle for the Argentine to be the new coach of the club for the next two seasons
they announced through their official website, verifying the rumours/reports that for days had been presenting the two sides as being very close to a deal.
Berizzo will come to Seville in the coming days in order to sign his contract and be officially presented as the new coach
the club also announced. Berizzo, another Argentine, spent the last three years at Celta. This season they did make it to the semifinals of the Europa League, but in La Liga they finished just 13th, a result too poor for the Vigo club to offer Berizzo a new contract.
That actually seemed perfectly fine by him as well, since he had shown signs of wanting to try something new in his career.
