Pellegrini, Cordón’s glamorous letter

Home / News / Pellegrini, Cordón’s glamorous letter


While Sevilla is still fighting to enter European positions, with two victories by Joaquín Caparrós since he sat on the bench, the club continues to take steps in hiring the sporting director, after the departure of Óscar Arias a few weeks ago. The favorite is Antonio Cordón, with whom, in addition to talking about his future contract, work team or salary, his preferences have also been probed when hiring a coach. The MARCA Newspaper already announced the name of Pablo Machín, with whom talks had been held. The Soriano is very much in the taste of both the club, because of its young and projectionist profile, and of Cordón himself, although his inexperience in a club of the demands of Sevilla causes some fear in the Sanchez-Pizjuán noble.
But the call to be the new sports director of Sevilla has another saved card, with a profile diametrically different from Machín, more glamorous and with an important background in level clubs. It is agreeing with the club which is the best way for the project that they are going to start this summer. That letter, as MARCA has confirmed, is none other than that of Manuel Pellegrini, an old acquaintance of Cordón from his time in Villarreal, where the Chilean introduced a nationally and Europeanly recognized style. The same happened to him at Málaga. Now he is in the Hebei Fortune, in China, although his wish is a last great project in Europe, since he did not finish his arrival to the national team.
Antonio Cordón has already contacted Pellegrini, with whom he has a great relationship, and they have talked about the possibility of training Sevilla. There is an English club that has also knocked on the door of the Chilean and could even have an advanced agreement, although Pellegrini would be willing to break it by reaching Nervión. The West Ham already wanted to hire it in winter. His poster in the Premier is important after his time at Manchester City, where he coincided with Sevilla’s Jesús Navas.

Two clear options

Machín and Pellegrini. Two options for the Sevilla bench. Cordón is moving without having closed his agreement, although these same movements indicate that his arrival to Nervión is not so far away. In addition to his work team, everything indicates that he would prefer a technician of European weight and whom he knows perfectly, knowing what profile of player he needs and without the need to make an excessive cleanup in the nervous establishment. A shift in style halfway between touch and competitiveness.
