José Antonio Camacho Coach Sevilla FC

After a meteoric start to his coaching career, José Antonio Camacho arrived at Sevilla in the summer of 1996, under the guidance of president José María González de Caldas. His exciting arrival, as well as that of a number of players to revamp the squad, did not, however, bear the desired fruit. Thus, with the team in 19th place in La Liga and eliminated from the Copa del Rey, the coach from Cieza left his post in February 1997, after losing 2-3 to Real Sociedad, in a match in which Sevilla were 2-0 up with only six minutes to go.
