Sevilla have officially announced the parting of ways with manager Jorge Sampaoli.
In the statement made by the Sevilla Club, the reasons for Sampaoli’s dismissal were stated as “the inability to take the team out of the lower ranks in the league and the image the team gave on the field in the last matches”.
Sevilla, which is in the 14th place with 28 points in the 26 weeks played so far in the league, is only 2 points above the teams in the relegation line.
Sevilla, who started the season with Jule Lopetegui in La Liga, dismissed the Spanish coach on 6 October and brought Sampaoli in his place after the bad results.
During his 6-month period in Sevilla, Sampaoli played 19 league games and got 6 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses.
Sevilla last lost 2-0 to Getafe on 19 March in La Liga.
Sevilla, who eliminated Fenerbahçe in the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League, advanced to the quarter-finals.
Spanish media claims that Sampaoli will be replaced by Jose Luis Mendilibar in Seville.
