The Spanish club Sevilla announced on Tuesday that former Uruguayan national coach Diego Alonso has been named to manage the rest of the season.
Sevilla, the defending Europa League champion, is currently in 14th place with two victories from eight games.
In the previous 12 months, the cash-strapped team has had four coaches, including the 48-year-old Alonso.
Alonso led Uruguay to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but after losing in the first round of qualification, Marcelo Bielsa took over.
His two Mexican teams, Pachuca and Monterrey, were where he achieved his greatest coaching success, winning the regional Champions League in 2017 and 2019.
In addition to Real Murcia and Espanol, he also played for Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Racing Santander, and Espanol.
On Sunday, Sevilla fired head coach Jose Luis Mendilibar following a dismal start to the year.
The 62-year-old was hired in March and helped the Andalusian club escape the threat of relegation last season as well as lead them to a record-extending eighth Europa League triumph in May.
Mendilibar assisted Sevilla in defeating Juventus and Manchester United en route to the Europa League final, which they defeated Jose Mourinho’s Roma on penalties.
