Sevilla has fired Jorge Sampaoli as manager as they look to avoid relegation.

“Sevilla have today relieved Jorge Sampaoli of his duties,” read a club statement. “Following the defeat at Getafe, which leaves the side just above the relegation zone, the club have decided to part ways with the Argentine coach ahead of the international break.”
