Sevilla have sacked manager Vincenzo Montella following a bad run of results.
The 43-year-old who was sacked by AC Milan in November before being appointed by the La Liga side in December, has been replaced with Joaquin Caparros until the end of the season.
“Sevilla FC have dismissed Vincenzo Montella after the side’s bad run of results since winning last in Old Trafford on the 13th of March,” a club statement read.
“Caparros will lead the team in the 2017/18 run-in and will then stay linked with the club in a role which had already been determined once Sevilla’s sporting structure had been reorganised.”
Montella guided Sevilla to the Copa del Rey final and defeated Manchester United to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League, but their 2-1 defeat to 17th-placed Levante on Friday prompted the boards quick decision.
The new interim manager, Caparros took charge of Sevilla between 2000 and 2005, winning promotion back to the top flight in 2001.
