Pablo Machín Sevilla FC Coach

In the summer of 2018, the arrival of Pablo Machín Díez to the Sevilla FC bench became official, once Joaquín Caparrós took over as Director of Football. Backed by his career at Girona FC, which he led to their debut in the First Division just a year earlier, the Soria-born player was embarking on his first experience at continental level. After a creditable first half of the season in which the Sevillian club finished third, Machín's side suffered a bad run of form that became more severe after their UEFA Europa League exit against Slavia Prague. He was dismissed in March 2019.
