Yesterday evening it was communicated that the Andalucían side have approached Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli, who has already managed the team between 2016 and 2017.

Unless they arrive at an agreement with his successor beforehand, it is believed that Lopetegui will manage the team against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday in the Champions League.

Lopetegui has been in charge of Sevilla since 2019. In 2020 guided the club to their sixth Europa League title and last season they finished fourth in La Liga.
