Montella became the first coach to lead Sevilla into the Champions League quarter-final after they knocked Manchester United out in the last 16 but he did not manage to win a game after their 2-1 triumph at Old Trafford. They did reach the King's Cup final, where they suffered an embarrassing 5-0 defeat by Barcelona last Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano, and Montella leaves them in seventh place, with their hope of a Europa League spot hanging in the balance. "Sevilla have dismissed Montella after the side's bad run of results since winning last in Old Trafford on the 13th of March. Since then, the Nervion side have gone nine games without a win, with five defeats," said a statement on Sevilla's official website http://sevillafc.es/en.

Caparros has had a long coaching career in Spain and took charge of Sevilla between 2000 and 2005, winning promotion back to the top flight in 2001. "The coach (Caparros) will lead the team in the 2017/18 run-in and will then stay linked with the club in a role which had already been determined once Sevilla's sporting structure had been reorganised," Sevilla said in a separate statement. "After a call from president Castro, the experienced coach did not hesitate to accepting control of the first team squad as the team pushes to qualify for European football in the season's four remaining games."
