The 62-year-old guided Sevilla away from relegation danger with a 12th-placed finish last season and beat Jose Mourinho’s Roma on penalties in May to clinch their seventh Europa League title.
Sevilla’s next match after the international break is a trip to Real Madrid before they host Arsenal in the Champions League.
