Monchi set for Sevilla return?

Sevilla have confirmed that former Roma sporting director Monchi could return to the club.

Monchi recently left Roma and had been heavily linked with a summer switch to Arsenal, but Sevilla President Jose Castro is confident the 50-year-old will be heading back to Andalusia instead.

“Joaquin [Caparros] will stop being sporting director so he can be Coach and Sevilla are working to bring in a new sporting director,” Castro told reporters.

“We believe Monchi is the best choice and we’ve started negotiations with him. His receptiveness has been extraordinary.

“We have to agree on future plans, but both parties are optimistic.”

It comes after the Spaniards sacked Coach Pablo Machin following their Europa League exit to Slavia Prague.
