The sporting director could end his spell due to disagreements with Castro and Del Nido.
We were all lied to when those images came to light in which Del Nido Jr. and Pepe Castro were clearly seen criticizing the signing of Diego Alonso for Sevilla, after having crossed some words with the sporting director, Víctor Orta.
Monchi’s successor was the one who endorsed the arrival of the Uruguayan coach, but the truth is that since he arrived in Nervión he has only won one Copa del Rey match, and has practically said goodbye to the Champions League, not to mention that relegation is looming in LaLiga.
Now, Castro and company want to undo said operation and if they lose to Real Betis, they would want the Uruguayan coach out of the bench, something that has caused the discomfort of Orta, who has even threatened to leave the team if they decide to take said decision.
For the current head of sports planning, it is important to give the coach time to obtain the expected results, and not to make decisions out of impatience or for show.
The situation is very tense and, beware, because if Sevilla loses the derby, both Diego Alonso and Víctor Orta could leave their positions. The board already has Lopetegui in mind, although other options are not ruled out. To replace Orta, Braulio Vázquez, sporting director of Osasuna, would be the favorite.
