Montella to Sevilla imminently

Sevilla are expected to announce Vincenzo Montella as their new Coach in the next 24 hours, as Milan release him from his contract.

The tactician was only fired on November 27 to make way for Gennaro Gattuso, but is still under contract until June 2019.

According to multiple reports, the Rossoneri will agree to terminate the deal by mutual consent so he can sign for the Liga club.

His contract with Sevilla is expected to run until June 2019 and he should have former Sevilla midfielder – and fellow Italian – Enzo Maresca as his assistant manager.

Sevilla sacked Eduardo Berizzo a few days before Christmas, just a week after he had returned to work from cancer surgery.

Although Walter Mazzarri was also interviewed for the role, the Spaniards decided Montella would be best suited to their style of football.

The 43-year-old started his management career at Roma, promoted from the youth academy as caretaker in February 2011.

He went on to Catania, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and spent just over a year at Milan.
