Sevilla back Montella

Sevilla announced that Vincenzo Montella will remain as Coach, but director of football Oscar Arias is out at the end of the season.

There was a crisis meeting after the disastrous 5-0 defeat in the Copa del Rey Final with Barcelona, leaving them without a win in eight matches.

Montella’s days appeared to be numbered and he was spotted in Milan with his partner today.

However, Chairman Jose Castro held a Press conference this evening in which he announced that Montella would remain, but director of football Arias was getting the axe instead.

"Sevilla FC is confident of having a new Director of Football within the month and is already working on a new technical configuration.

“We are without a doubt at the edge of a change in who will direct our Sporting Committee, because above all else we know that there have been mistakes this year that we have to put right.

“We have things to change and we will change them because that's why we're here and we have that responsibility".

The Chairman also noted that in a meeting, Montella had shown “strength” and pledged to get Sevilla into Europe.

If he fails, it’s safe to say he won’t remain as Coach for next season.
