New Sevilla coach for a few days, Jorge Sampaoli wishes to recover Gerson, whom he rubbed shoulders with in Marseille last season.
Everything is going very quickly for Sampaoli. Freshly appointed new coach of Sevilla, the Argentinian aims to raise the bar within the Andalusian club, very badly embarked in the league (18th with 6 points after 8 days) and also almost eliminated from the Champions League (2 points after 4 days).
To achieve this objective, the former Albiceleste coach would like reinforcements from the winter transfer window. According to Estadio Deportivo, Jorge Sampaoli would like to recruit a player he knows well, in the presence of Gerson, the Marseille midfielder.
A true strongman of Sampaoli during his time at OM, Gerson had scored 11 goals and delivered 10 assists including tax. This season, the Brazilian midfielder has still not played a match in its entirety.
