Oscar Arias, Monchi’s right hand man at Sevilla, has confirmed that the sporting director will leave the Rojiblancos. Monchi has been frequently linked with taking over at Roma in the summer, and although Arias didn’t shed any light on this when he spoke to Sport Cope he did make it clear that the sporting director’s future lies away from Seville.
“Monchi has been clear, he will leave. Having spoken to him, I can see that he’s set on his decision, although I don’t know exactly when he will be leaving. One of the most important people at the club is leaving, but Sevilla isn’t just him. Monchi will leave the sporting structures he put into place behind him, and they will keep working even after his departure. His decision to leave is final.”
