Sevilla is seeing a revolution in their team, coming after the elimination from the Europa League: coach Pablo Machin was sacked, the team being led by its director of sport Caparros as caretaker. The future could be on the coming quickly for Sevilla, and could include a return to the past. As the role of sporting director now becomes free, and the president of the club Castro gave his thoughts on the matter in a press conference: "From today Caparros will no longer occupy the role of sporting director. Our idea for this role is to find the best, the best sporting director is Monchi. We have already negotiated with him and we have a very positive feeling. Our conversations with Monchi have been very good."
After ending his adventure with Roma, Monchi could return as soon as immediately to re-take his role as Sevilla's sporting director, a joining that has brought much past success.
