José Luis Mendilibar comes to Sevilla FC with two other figures to complete the coaching team that will accompany him in this new stage of his career. The coach has Fran Rico as Assistant Coach, an ex-player who retired in 2019 and whom he coached at SD Eibar, where he later took up a technical role, one which he would briefly hold at Real Sporting de Gijón too. Rico will arrive in Sevilla today.
There are other new arrivals with Toni Ruiz coming in as Head of Fitness, who has been a common sight in Mendilibar's set up ever since they joined up in Lanzarote. Pepe Conde as a trainer and José Luis Silva as Goalkeeping Coach, both remain in the dugout.
