Quique Sanchez Flores takes charge of Sevilla

After a string of poor performances and unsatisfying results, Diego Alonso has been sacked by Sevilla. Today, the club announced that Quique Sanchez Flores will be the successor at the helm of the team. The agreement signed is for the Spaniard to manage Sevilla until the summer of 2025.

Sevilla is currently in 17th place in LaLiga, on equal points with Celta, who are in the relegation zone. On top of that, the team finished in the last 4th position in its Champions League group and crashed out of Europe, collecting a mere 2 points from the six games. This marks the second managerial change this season for Sevilla, as Diego Alonso replaced Jose Maria Mendilibar in October. Since then, he recorded only 2 victories, and following the heavy 0:3 home defeat at the hands of Getafe on Saturday, 16th of December, resulted in his sacking.

Quique Sanchez Flores takes charge of a 10th different team in his career, having previously managed Valencia, Benfica, Atletico Madrid, Espanyol, Getafe (3 times), Watford (2 times), Al Ain, Al Ahly, and Shanghai Shenhua. His latest club was Getafe, where Flores spent time between October 2021 and April 2023. The 58-year-old’s biggest achievements are winning the Portuguese cup with Benfica in 2009 and the UEFA Europa League the following year with Atletico Madrid.
