At 21:44 on Sunday night, Sevilla FC published a tweet with a very brief message, but very forceful. "José Luis Mendilibar is no longer coach of #SevillaFC. Thank you for everything, José Luis" and added #WeareSevilla.

Thus, the Andalusian team, which marched fourteenth in LaLiga EA Sports but did not finish starting, dispensed with the coach with whom he had won his last European title, his seventh Europa League.

The draw in extremis against Rayo had been the straw that had broken the camel's back in the offices of Nervión, as well as his decisions such as replacing Fernando, a heavyweight in the Sevilla dressing room, half an hour into the game.

Mendilibar leaves Sevilla with two wins, two draws and four defeats in 9 matchdays. We must remember that Sevilla and Atlético de Madrid have one game less for their match postponed by weather conditions on September 3.

Victor Orta, Sevilla's sporting director, is now on a mission to find a new coach during the national team break just a year after his predecessor, Monchi, dispensed with the services of Julen Lopetegui, following the team's poor performance.

Mendilibar is the second coach dismissed from LaLiga EA Sports after Villarreal dispensed with the services of Quique Setién, who was replaced by José Rojo Martín, "Pacheta".
