Former Inter Miami Boss Finds a New Gig
It might have been a year to forget for Inter Miami fans, but under the direction of Diego Alonzo, the 2020 season was certainly… interesting.
Alonzo was named the inaugural manager for the club in 2019 after stints abroad, but after a 10th-place finish in 2020, Inter Miami and Alonzo agreed to part ways.
Well, things didn’t get a whole lot better for Alonzo as he most recently resigned as head coach for the Uruguayan national team after the side failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the 2022 World Cup.
Times have changed as La Liga side Sevilla after it fired Jose Luis Mendilibar following a disastrous start to the 2023 season.
Sevilla currently sit in 14th place overall after just two wins from eight matches to start the La Liga campaign.
They’ve also drawn their first two Champions League matches — against PSV and Lens.
For the record, Alonzo has done most of his coaching in North and South America — including jobs at Penarol and Bella Vista in Uruguay, Olimpia and Guarani in Paraguay as well as Pachuca and Monterrey in Mexico.
The job at Sevilla will be Alonzo’s first in Europe.
