“I am happy and also surprised, because I was not expecting it,” L’Aeroplanino told Sky Sport Italia.
“I was在线外围投注 able to play against Sevilla in the Europa League semi-final as Coach of Fiorentina and it was honestly a struggle to make yourself heard from the touchline, as the home supporters were so loud.
Vincenzo Montella admits he was “not expecting” the Sevilla job so soon after his Milan dismissal, but “always wanted an experience abroad.”
Montella arrived in Sevilla this evening, where he was greeted at the airport along with his new assistant manager – and former Sevilla midfielder – Enzo Maresca.
The tactician will be appointed once he has resolved his contract situation with Milan, which ought to be over the next 24 hours, as he was fired on November 27.
Sevilla sacked Coach Eduardo Berizzo just a few days before Christmas, a week after he returned from time off for cancer treatment.
Other options for the bench included Walter Mazzarri, so why did the Spaniards choose Montella?
“I am curious and enthusiastic. I had always wanted to try an experience abroad. Perhaps I didn’t expect it to be so soon, especially once I had started the season, but my plans, my aspirations and my dreams were all projected towards going abroad.”
“You’d have to ask the club, but in Spain they play primarily to entertain and get a result. I studied the history of Sevilla and it requires a great deal of passion, so it’s a real challenge.”
“This possibility appeared suddenly and I am extremely enthusiastic to be coming to Spain for this new adventure, at a great club with marvellous fans.”
