Sevilla fires coach Michel, hires Unai Emery

BY foxsports • January 14, 2013

Spanish club Sevilla says it has fired coach Jose Miguel ''Michel'' Gonzalez and replaced him with Unai Emery.

The club said Monday that Michel was ''dismissed due to a poor run of results,'' with the club in 12th place in the Spanish league following a 2-0 loss to Valencia on Saturday.

It said Emery signed a deal to coach the team until June 2014. Emery last coached Russian team Spartak Moscow, but was fired in November after a 5-1 loss in the league to Dinamo Moscow.

Michel joined Sevilla in February last year.
