The 2023/2024 season has not started in the best way for Sevilla FC in La Liga. The Andalusian team is in 14th position in the classification table, with just 8 points obtained from 2 wins, 2 draws, and 4 losses. A complicated start that has left the fans worried.
In addition to its poor performance in La Liga, Sevilla has also failed to stand out in the Champions League, with two draws in its first two games against Lens and PSV. This series of adverse results has led to the dismissal of the technical director, José Luis Mendilibar, who took over after the departure of Jorge Sampaoli, fired at the time from Flamengo in Brazil.
Marcelo Gallardo, in Sevilla’s sights: Will he be the savior of the Andalusians?
Given this situation, the name that once again resonates in the halls of Sevilla is that of Marcelo Gallardo, affectionately known as ‘Muñeco’. Gallardo left his successful position at River Plate at the end of 2022 and has since been waiting for the right opportunity to return to the dugout. Previously, he rejected an offer from Olympique de Marseille in France and also declined the offer from Ajax.
However, the main obstacle for Marcelo Gallardo to become the next coach of Sevilla is the financial demands of the Argentine coach. Although his experience and abilities are indisputable, the Spanish club must consider his financial capacity before making a decision.
So far, Sevilla has explored several options to fill Mendilibar’s position, but a clear name has yet to emerge. The fans are looking forward to finding out who will be in charge of leading the team in this challenging season.
The possibility of Marcelo Gallardo taking over the reins of Sevilla is a mystery that keeps the club’s followers in suspense. Will ‘Muñeco’ be the solution to the team’s problems in La Liga? Only time will tell if the parties manage to reach an agreement that benefits both parties and allows Sevilla to regain its bearings in the competition.
