Greece is starting to become the place to be for Sevilla coaches. Mendilibar not only found his place at Olympiakos, but also led them to win the Conference League. Now it is Panathinaikos who have decided to take a gamble on a former Sevilla coach.
Diego Alonso has signed for the Athenian club for two seasons to replace Christos Kontis. Panathinaikos have just won the Greek Cup but the league is still the big thorn in their side's side. They finished fourth this year and have not won the league since 2009/10.
An opportunity to relaunch his career, which has stagnated in recent years. His time in Mexico was promising. There he won two CONCACAF Champions League titles, one with Pachuca and the other with Monterrey, but his latest experiences have not been up to the mark.
After arriving in the Andalusian capital to replace Mendilibar, his time in Sevilla was almost unimpressive. Diego Alonso managed 14 games, which ended with a balance of two wins, five draws and seven defeats.
