HOW DID THEY DO LAST SEASON?

Sevilla finished 4th in La Liga last term and were knocked out in the Champions League round of 16 by Leicester City.

WHO IS THEIR MANAGER?

Eduardo Berizzo is the current manager of the club, having taken over from fellow Argentine Jorge Luis Sampaoli Moya who left to manage the Argentina national team after just one season in Spain.

Berizzo joined from fellow La Liga side Celta de Vigo, where he had spent three years. Prior to that he managed O’Higgins in Chlie and Estudiantes in Argentina.

French striker Wissam Ben Yedder was the club’s top scorer last term – netting 18 times in all competitions.

However, this summer Sevilla have added a number of attacking players to their ranks, with the two most notable additions being Nolito and Jesús Navas from Manchester City.
