Sampaoli is about to be fired by Sevilla FC
According As, the adventure of Jorge Sampaoli on the bench of Sevilla FC is coming to an end. The Andalusian club would have decided to dismiss the former OM coach and would even already hold the name of his replacement, Pepe Bordalas (ex Valencia, Getafe or even Elche). The formalization could even take place in the next few hours.
Sevilla FC is stuck in 14th place in La Liga with only two points ahead of the first relegation player. Sunday, the Andalusians lost on the lawn of Getafe (2-0), a defeat which should therefore be fatal to Sampaoli.
Elche sacks its third coach of the season
Elche, bottom of La Liga with only two wins since the start of the season, has sacked coach Pablo Machin, the club announced in a statement on Monday morning.
This decision was taken following the 2-0 defeat at Real Sociedad on Sunday evening. Arrived in November when this club from the Alicante region (southeast) was already relegated, Machin must give up his post after fourteen matches at the head of the club and only three victories (two in La Liga and one in the Cup).
This is the third technician from Elche dismissed since the start of the season, after Francisco (November 28, 2021 – October 4, 2022) and Jorge Almiron, who stayed for five days between the beginning of October and the beginning of November 2022.
Last in the standings since the start of the championship, Elche has suffered 17 defeats and seven draws in the 26 matches played so far, and is fourteen points behind the first non-relegation player, Espanyol Barcelona (17th with 27 points). The club are yet to announce the name of his replacement.
Sergi Roberto doesn’t understand Messi’s treatment
After Barça’s victory in the Clasico this Sunday (2-1), Sergi Roberto confided in journalist Gerard Romero on a possible Lionel Messi at Barça. “Who won’t be ready for Messi to come back? At the end of the day, we don’t want to talk too much because it’s up to him to decide, the president, the coach or whoever else, but if it’s for the players, we’re already waiting for it.”
Relaunched on the treatment that the Argentinian receives at PSG (whistles were heard at the Park during the reception of Rennes), the Catalan defender does not understand the behavior of the supporters of the capital club. “He is having good seasons in Paris, he scores a lot of goals, he makes assists. Because of the elimination, they attacked him, but he is a spectacular player and it is very bad that a player of this level is treated this way. We will treat him very well here if he comes.”

PSG: Galtier a little more in the hot seat after the defeat against Rennes?
Christophe Galtier was asked about his future after PSG’s new setback against Rennes, this Sunday, during the 28th day of Ligue 1 (0-2). And the Parisian coach, under contract until 2024, assured to be fully focused on the end of the season. Nothing else.
>> The complete declas of Galtier on his future
“You’re talking about my future. I came here, it’s a very clear thing, for a two-year project, he replied at a press conference. Everyone speculates on what will happen in the end season. Me, my only obsession is to be champion. Will this defeat generate a reflection on the part of my management? Maybe. But we still have to put everything in context. With a squad where eight players were missing. And a mandatory change at half-time since Pembélé was out through injury.”
