The correction received on Saturday by his Sevilla FC team on the lawn of Atlético de Madrid (6-1) could well cost his place to Jorge Sampaoli.
Sevilla FC’s more than complicated season continues. After a very slight respite in mid-February with a win and a draw, the team coached by Jorge Sampaoli started to sink again by chaining two new defeats, the tenth and eleventh this season in twenty-four La Liga games. The latest, conceded Saturday night at the Wanda Metropolitano against Atlético de Madrid hurt a lot. A demonstration of Madrid and Seville sank (6-1). Still in office despite the seventeenth place occupied by his men, Jorge Sampoali is on an ejection seat.
The one who was still coach of Olympique de Marseille less than a year ago could quickly be the victim of the spanking received in Madrid. This is what AS said on Sunday, indicating that the patience of the Sevillian supporters has run out and they want the Argentine’s quick departure. The media adds that on the side of the management of Sevilla FC, the time is still for reflection. Despite the urgency of the situation imposed by the chain of catastrophic results, she would hesitate to part with Sampaoli. And this for a simple reason: it would be very expensive.
Still, even in the locker room, Jorge Sampaoli is decried. AS cites the example of left-back Marcos Acuña who declared: “ We players have to understand what we have to do. We are given instructions but we do not understand them. “If he had succeeded during his time on the OM bench, Jorge Sampaoli seems very close to another failure.
