Michel close to Sevilla exit

Michel Gonzalez is thought just hours away from being sacked as Coach of Sevilla, with the club confirming his position is up for debate.

Defeat at the weekend away to Valencia has left the team in lower mid-table territory in La Liga and extended their poor run of League form to just the two wins from the last 11 outings.

Leading the side to their joint-worst points tally for the first half of the season since President Jose Maria del Nido’s arrival at the club in 2002, Michel’s position was originally thought safe due to the imminent Copa del Rey quarter-final against Real Zaragoza.

However, following on from angry fans attending training and chanting against the players and Michel, Del Nido has confirmed in a Press conference that the board will meet this afternoon to discuss the sporting situation and take action.

It is speculated that this will see Michel out of a job by the evening.

“It has now been decided to delegate to the executive committee the assessment of the sporting situation,” Del Nido told reporters today.

“They shall meet in the evening tonight and take all appropriate measures. I cannot say anything more because I would be lying if I uttered one way or another.”
