Former Super Eagles captain Sunday Oliseh has hailed Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui for believing in his ability.

The Spaniard had gone through topsy-turvy in his career as manager since 2018.

Oliseh in a tweet on his verified account said he was extremely pleased for what the former La Furia Roja manager has achieved with Sevilla within a short period.
He wrote: “Since Pre-World cup 2018 scandalous sacking,Julen Lopetegui’s been to hell & back,suffered non-stop humiliations.

“Sad for Man.U fans, but extremely pleased 4 Lopetegui.

“Imagine the joy & relief his loved ones feel tonight.

“Wish him well in the final. 

“It pays 2 keep believing #SEVMUN.”

On 12 June 2018, with the team already in Russia for the tournament, it was announced that Lopetegui would take over as the manager of Real Madrid on a three-year contract after the conclusion of Spain’s involvement at the World Cup.

The following day, he was dismissed from his job with the national team and replaced by Fernando Hierro.

Lopetegui’s first competitive game in charge took place on 15 August 2018, in a 2–4 loss to rivals Atlético Madrid for the UEFA Super Cup after extra time.

Following a string of bad results and, ultimately, a 5–1 away defeat to Barcelona in El Clásico on 28 October, he was fired a day later, being replaced by Santiago Solari.

On 5 June 2019, Lopetegui was appointed as the new Sevilla manager on a three-year contract.
