Dimitri Cheryshev joins Sevilla as one of Emery's assistants
The former Russia striker has been taken on board by the Andalusian club as one of Unai Emery's assistants alongside Juan Carlos Carcedo and Pablo Villanueva.
Sevilla confirmed on Tuesday that Dimitri Cheryshev will be joining the club as part of Unai Emery’s coaching staff. The Russian, a former striker, will be one of the Basque coach’s assistants alongside Juan Carlos Carcedo and Pablo Villanueva, collaborating both on the training pitch “and in the laboratory”.
The father of Denis Cheryshev, who spent two seasons on loan at Sevilla from Real Madrid, will add experience gained both from the bench of the youth teams and in sports management, another incentive the Andalusian club were looking for as part of the daily work at the club.
His appointment is a curious one given Cheryshev scored a goal for Sporting Gíjon at Betis in 1997 which helped seal Sevilla’s relegation from the top flight. Villamarín celebrated that goal as Betis seemingly took their foot off the gas, something Cheryshev admitted to AS a few months ago.
