Sevilla Coach has 100 points with Andalusians
Julen Lopetegui has extended his contract as Sevilla head coach until 30 June 2024, adding two years to his existing contract.
With Saturday’s win over Real Sociedad, the Basque coach reached the 100-point mark as Sevilla boss, adding this season’s 30 to the 70 which secured a fourth-place finish last campaign.
Over the course of those 54 LaLiga Santander matches, Lopetegui’s Sevilla are picking up an average of 1.85 points per game and have a positive goal difference of 28.
In his first season in charge, the former Porto, Spain and Real Madrid manager achieved a Champions League place and won the Europa League.
This season, Sevilla sit in sixth place, level on points with fifth-place La Real who have played three more, and remain in the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
Lopetegui is also the Sevilla coach with the joint-best record, together with Juande Ramos, in terms of win percentage and percentage of matches not lost.
