Saturday evening saw head coach Jorge Sampaoli achieve a 50% win record in the league. Despite not being able to take a seat in the dugout for his 50th league game in charge due to suspension, the boss added to his illustrious career by reaching another milestone. Only Helenio Herrera and Juande Ramos (53%), Manolo Jiménez (52%) and his predecessor Julen Lopetegui (51%) have better win records.
The Argentine, who in his first stint back in the 2016/17 season achieved great numbers reaching 72 points from 21 wins, 9 draws and as little as 8 defeats, continues to progress during his second spell as Sevilla head coach. To date, Sampaoli has racked up 4 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in his 12 league games as boss. With exciting, albeit complex, games on the horizon, next week's visit to the Camp Nou is another chance for Sampaoli's side to pick up three points when they face FC Barcelona.
With these numbers, it's clear that the Argentine is trying to bring about change. The coach himself alluded to this after yesterday evening's game saying that as part of this growth, we must continue to strive to improve our image. There is a long road ahead but the manager's stats indicate an encouraging situation.
