Sevilla poised to sack coach Michel
Struggling Spanish Liga club Sevilla are poised to sack coach Michel, according to media reports on Monday.
Club president Jose Maria del Nido refused to answer questions about Michel's future on Monday. He is expected to announced his sacking after a board meeting later on Monday.
Del Nido labelled Sevilla's season "very deficient," and added that things "will have to change."
Sevilla are in disappointing 12th place in La Liga, after Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Valencia. On Monday Michel and his players were insulted during training by a group of angry fans.
Michel, 49, took over at Sevilla in February 2012 after the sacking of Marcelino Garcia.
According to AS, the favourite to take over from Michel is former Valencia and Spartak Moscow boss Unai Emery.
