MADRID (AP) — Jorge Sampaoli is set to begin his second stint as Sevilla’s coach. Sevilla says the 62-year-old Argentine has agreed to a contract for the remainder of this season plus one more. Sampaoli already coached Sevilla in 2016-17 before leaving to take over Argentina. He replaces Julen Lopetegui a day after he was fired following the team’s poor start to the season. Sampaoli inherits a club that is in 17th place in the Spanish league and winless in three Champions League games. Sevilla hosts a strong Athletic Bilbao side on Saturday in the Spanish league before visiting Dortmund next week.
