Sevilla sack coach Pablo Machín

Sevilla have parted company with coach Pablo Machín following Thursday’s Europa League elimination at the hands of Slavia Prague.

Director of Football Joaquín Caparrós will take over until the end of the season, starting with this weekend’s trip to Espanyol.

Thursday’s 4-3 defeat in Prague was Sevilla’s fourth defeat in their last seven matches in all competitions. They are without a win away from home since September.

Machín – who was only appointed in July – leaves the Andalusian club 6th in LaLiga.
