Tense atmosphere at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán at the end of the match against Atlético, which ended with a new defeat for Sevilla (0-2).

Rumors about the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui were triggered while the coach appeared very sad in the press room.

The club's board of directors met at the conclusion of the defeat against the Madrid team to analyze the possible dismissal of the Basque coach with president José Castro and Monchi, deputy sports director, at the helm.

The executive always defended Lopetegui, although this newspaper has been able to confirm that Sevilla has sounded out several coaches since the team's harsh defeat against City (0-4) in the Champions League on September 6.

One of the technicians contacted was Jorge Sampaoli,

who was willing to assume the direction of the Sevilla bench in the face of doubts from the rest of the possible candidates.

Now everything indicates that this step is going to be taken.

At the club it is understood that it is normal for the club to seek relief from Lopetegui given the team's poor results.

Lopetegui held on thanks to the victory against Espanyol (2-3) and the draws against Copenhagen (0-0) and Villarreal (1-1).

Now, after the break, Atlético has once again uncovered all the shortcomings of Sevilla.

"I'm sad, not weak," he commented, visibly affected by his team's new defeat.

"I'm not thinking about the dismissal, just about getting the players back and preparing for the next Champions League match against Dortmund," said the Basque when asked about his possible departure from Sevilla.

Inside the stadium there was talk of a dismissal this Sunday and even the possible arrival of Joaquín Caparrós, dismissed with the Armenian team and eternal interim coach of Sevilla, floated in the atmosphere.

“I am not going to value planning, those who are there are ours and we have to take care of them.

The situation of the team is not what we want, I am sure that the team will turn the situation around.

There is a lot of time ahead, but the decisions are present, now we focus on the Champions League”, added the Basque.

“I am focused on what depends on me.

There are situations that are related to football, but I am focused on what I can do and contribute.

We must give a better version and compete better to have better results”, concluded a very touched Sevilla coach.

“The idea was to have a first half being able to do more damage to Atlético.

Any slightest mistake would be punished.

It was a very balanced first half in which the little details set it apart, ”said Lopetegui regarding his vision of the development of the match.

While waiting for a hectic Sunday at Sevilla, Diego Pablo Simeone was quite satisfied with the result obtained in a traditionally complicated fiefdom.

“I feel more recognizable with the team that works as a group, although when we win it is easier to feel close to the team.

What we are looking for is to reproduce what we have always done.

Running and working, which is what I'm looking for and I'll be looking for”, explained the Atlético coach.

“It is not easy to replace footballers like Diego Carlos or Koundé.

They are high-ranking footballers.

Today he has other boys who must adapt and the coach must adapt.

Sevilla always has a brave bet, with intention.

I hope they recover because they are an important team in LaLiga”, admitted the Sevilla coach about a rival in full decline.
