Monchi: Julen Lopetegui will stay in charge of Sevilla

Sevilla sporting director Monchi has confirmed that Julen Lopetegui will continue as Sevilla manager, according to Deportes COPE Sevilla.

“There is no other way than with Lopetegui… He gives us a lot and we value him. He has a valid contract,” Monchi told Cope on Monday.

Sevilla’s 1-1 draw with Atlético Madrid secured them Champions League football for a third successive season under Lopetegui, following which Monchi praised the Basque manager to Movistar: “Three years in a row taking us to the Champions League, what more do we want? He is a magnificent manager.”

Monchi also warded off rumours of a change at the helm, claiming that any news of Diego Martínez potentially taking charge of Sevilla had been fabricated.

“The news of Diego Martínez is false. With that news, they (the media) have tried to destabilise us.”
