MADRID: Celta Vigo manager Eduardo Berizzo is being lined up by Sevilla to become their next manager. Berizzo, 47, has impressed with his work at Vigo leading them to the Europa League semi-final against Manchester United.
He has also managed to consolidate their place in La Liga as they lie in 13th position. The club have offered Berizzo an improved contract but it has fallen short of Sevilla’s proposal who want him to replace Jorge Sampaoli who is poised to become coach of Argentina.
In turn Vigo are keen to replace Berizzo with former Liverpool defender Mauricio Pellegrino. The 45-year-old, who worked as an assistant to Rafa Benitez at Liverpool and Inter Milan, has had an impressive season in La Liga coaching Alaves who are ninth in the table.
Jese wants to stay
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez wants to turn his loan at Las Palmas into a permanent deal. Outcast Jese joined French giants PSG from Real Madrid last summer in a bid to revive his career after dropping out of the first team at the Santiago Bernabeu.
But the move failed to pan out, with Jese playing just nine league games for PSG and making a single Ligue 1 start during his time at the Parc des Princes.
That led to Jese joining Las Palmas on loan in January, where he has scored three goals in 15 La Liga appearances. While PSG manager Unai Emery has insisted that he has not made his mind up over Jese’s future, the 24-year-old said that he is keen to remain in Spain with his loan club. -DAILYMAIL
