Sacked by Spain before the World Cup after committing to Real, Lopetegui lasted barely three months before he was dismissed last season.
But today, Lopetegui has Sevilla sitting fourth on the table, just a point off the leadership.
Lopetegui told Marca: "I do not want to think about it, because there is no reason to compare. What happened, happened. There is not always a positive memory, but in all experiences you grow and take note. After all, in football what you have done does not guarantee you anything.
"Journalists have to talk about other things, but we focus on game by game. In the end all experiences can be good."
He continued: "I can't be bothered to analyse what happened, they are normal situations, one is exposed to that in the world of football in such a hurry and demand. It may happen that two or three bad results leave you hanging, but you have to take it naturally."
