Jorge Sampaoli confirmed as new Sevilla coach
The Argentine has a fine track record having led Chile to the 2015 Copa America, and he will be the man entrusted with continuing Emery's work at the Andalucians
Sevilla have confirmed that Jorge Sampaoli will be their new coach, replacing Unai Emery at the Europa League holders.
"The Argentine coach begins here his first adventure in Europe after having triumphed in South America and establishing himself as one of the highest-rated trainers in the football world," the message pointed out as Sevilla welcomed him to the club.
The Andalucian club released a statement welcoming the Argentine on Monday, as he put pen to paper on a two-year contract.
Sampaoli's last job was with the Chilean national team, whom he led to the 2015 Copa America on home soil.
The Rosario native had previously come to prominence at Santiago's Universidad de Chile, where he lifted three national championships and a Copa Sudamericana title in just two years.
Having coached in Peru and Ecuador as well as Chile, Sevilla will be the 56-year-old's first taste of European football.
