Sevilla sack Machin with Joaquin Caparros returning
Sevilla have sacked head coach Pablo Machin with former boss and sporting director Joaquin Caparros taking over after the exit from the Europa League to Slavia Prague being the last straw for the club hierarchy.
José Castro, president of Sevilla FC , attended the press after hearing the news of the dismissal of Pablo Machín as Sevilla coach, wanted “to thank Pablo Machín for his professionalism and dedication while he has been in charge of Sevilla FC”, indicating that Caparrós will be “aided by Carlos Marchena, Paco Gallardo and Antonio Álvarez “.
“It has not been a decision taken lightly. During the last week we analyzed the possibility of dismissing Pablo Machín for the bad results, although we hoped to get out of that crisis . It has not been like this and we have come to the conclusion that nobody better than Joaquín, a successful coach, was the person who took the reins of the first team, especially because the staff we have is practically made by him, “added José Castro , after which he stated that “I communicated the decision to Machín personally.”
