Former Milan coach Vincenzo Montella set to take reins at Sevilla

Former Milan coach Vincenzo Montella is set to take charge of Sevilla after reaching an agreement with the La Liga club on Thursday.

Sevilla has officially announced that Montella, 43, would travel to Spain as soon as he had terminated his contract with Milan, where he was fired as coach at the end of last month.

“Sevilla FC and the Italian coach Vincenzo Montella have reached an agreement for him to become coach of the first team until June 2019,” the La Liga giants said in a statement.

Montella will be replacing Eduardo Berizzo — who was sacked last Friday following a run of poor results — only a week after returning to work following an operation to treat prostate cancer.

Berizzo was sacked despite Sevilla currently standing at a respectable fifth place in the table and having qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League, after the Argentinian replaced his compatriot Jorge Sampaoli, who left after the end of last season to take charge of their country’s national team.

“Sevilla FC would like to express its gratitude to Berizzo for his professionalism, the work he has delivered and his treatment of all the members of the club since his arrival,” Sevilla said in the statement announcing the dismissal.

As a player, Montella played as a former striker for Genoa, Sampdoria and Roma while making 20 international appearances for Italy. His coaching career has included three seasons with Fiorentina, finishing fourth in Serie A in each, one with Sampdoria and one and a half with Milan.

Once he takes charge at Sevilla, Montella will be the only Italian coach in La Liga after Gianni De Biasi having been fired by Alaves at the end of November.
