Sevilla Appoint Jorge Sampaoli

Sevilla have appointed Jorge Sampaoli as their new manager after the Spanish side confirmed that the former Chile coach has agreed a two-year deal with the Europa League champions to replace Unai Emery.

“Sevilla are counting on the best coach of America in 2015, who begins his first adventure in Europe,” Sevilla said in statement of the man who led his country to their first Copa America triumph last year.

The 56-year-old, out of a job since stepping down as Chile coach in January, lost out to Barcelona coach Luis Enrique for the 2015 FIFA World Coach of the Year award after making the three-man shortlist following his Copa America success.

Emery, who steered the team to the last three Europa League crowns, was under contract with Sevilla until June 2017 but negotiated a release from his contract.
