Sevilla verified Lopetegui’s sacking following a huge loss at home to the EstadioR. Sanchez Pizjuan. The director feels pressured because his platoon is only one place above the deportation zone in Spanish La Liga. Sevilla also only picked up one point from three titleholders League matches.
Lopetegui left after three seasons with Sevilla. Where he managed to win 89 triumphs in 170 matches. He led Sevilla to qualify for the titleholders League in each of his three seasons. But his biggest achievement was winning the 2020 Europa League. At that time Sevilla managed to beat Inter 3- 2 in the final.
” Sevilla FC have released Julen Lopetegui from his duties as first- platoon trainer. After we lost against Borussia Dortmund.” the club said in a statement.
” This ends a successful period with three great juggernauts. In which the club achieved their thing and a fourth season. Unfortunately the result wasn’t to our relish. The club has five points out of a possible 21 in La Liga.”

Titleholders League Julen Lopetegui to be replaced by Jorge Sampaoli
There’s an intriguing note. Where Sevilla lost four times in a row in all competitions. It was the first loss since 2002. Sevilla have played 10 games this season, with just one palm. The rest, Lopetegui was only suitable to give three draws and six defeats.
” We did not start the season well and they’ve made their decision. I’ve to accept it, indeed if I do not like it.” Lopetegui said on the club’s sanctioned website.
” The club chairman has verified that I’m no longer Sevilla trainer. The last three seasons have been major and spectacular. With the achievement of a jewel and qualification into the titleholders League for three seasons in a row,” he said.
After the redundancy, it seems Lopetegui won’t be out of work for too long. The reason, he’s also being leered to handle English club, Wolverhampton Wanderers. Jorge Sampaoli will replace Lopetegui. The 62- time-old trainer preliminarily managed the club in the2016/17 season. But now he’ll return to Andalusia for a alternate term.
