Sevilla ‘contact ex-PSG boss Pochettino to replace Lopetegui as manager’ after worst La Liga start EVER
SEVILLA have reportedly made contact with former Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino.
That’s after recording their worst start to the La Liga season under Julen Lopetegui.
The 2020 Europa League champions have collected just ONE point from their first four matches this season.
A draw against Valladolid was sandwiched between away defeats at Osasuna and Almeria.
Sevilla were then beaten 3-0 at home by Barcelona on Saturday.
And they now face a series of tough games against Espanyol, Villarreal and Atletico Madrid.
Things could also get off to a bad start in the Champions League, with Sevilla hosting Premier League champions Man City tomorrow.
And Estadio Deportivo now claim club bosses have approached Pochettino over a stunning move to Spain.
The Argentinian tactician is without a club after being sacked by PSG this summer.
Pochettino is currently on a year-long sabbatical following his brutal ax after winning the Ligue 1 title.

He apparently turned down an approach from Athletic Bilbao last month.
And Poch’s intention remains to take a year off before returning to senior management in 2023.
Sevilla sporting director Monchi will now weigh the pros and cons of sacking Lopetegui, who has two more years left on his contract.
The manager has approved six signings this summer, including free transfers for Isco and Adnan Januzaj.
And he could still turn things around as his new look continues to gel.
Sevilla are also wary of Poch’s wage demands, which exceed £7million a year in Paris.
But that still hasn’t stopped them from reaching out to the tactician, with fans now waiting to see if Lopetegui holds out even longer.
