Sam Allardyce’s Blackburn have only won once on the road in the Premier League this season, they travel to Burnley this Sunday – 12:00 SS1

Sevilla have confirmed assistant coach Antonio Alvarez will take charge of the first team until the end of the season.

Alvarez replaces Manolo Jimenez who was sacked following Tuesday’s 1-1 draw against basement boys Xerez.

Sevilla turned to Alvarez after former Spain coach Luis Aragones turned down the opportunity to succeed Jimenez.

It is Alvarez’s first position as first-team coach, having worked as Jimenez’s assistant for the previous two years.

A club statement read: “Antonio Alvarez, who is part the coaching staff at Sevilla and who yesterday took the first team in training, has been appointed by the club as head coach of the team from now until the end of the current season.

“Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nidoannounced this to the team before this Friday’s training session.

“The new Sevilla coach will give a press conference at the end of today’s training session, at which the Sevilla president himself along with sporting director Monchi will be present.”
