"It is true that when the news of Lopetegui was leaked as a new coach, there was a majority reaction that was not be hidden and that was negative.

"That negative current only strengthened my relationship with the coach and convinced me even more."

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."

Here are ten of the top stories, including all the drama of the Seville derby.


SEVILLA EDGE THE DERBY AGAINST REAL BETIS

One of the most passionate fixtures in Spanish football took place on Sunday night at the Estadio Benito Villamarn, with Sevilla running out narrow 2-1 winners over hosts Real Betis. The visitors took home the three points thanks to Luuk de Jong's second-half strike. They meet in LaLiga Santander again in March, but until then the bragging rights belong to Sevilla.


ANOTHER HAT-TRICK FOR MESSI

Lionel Messi bagged a record-equalling 34th LaLiga Santander hat-trick in Barcelona's 4-1 in over RC Celta on Saturday night. He now stands equal with Cristiano Ronaldo who else? atop the historical hat-trick charts.


AGUIRRE'S RETURN TO LALIGA

Javier Aguirre is back in Spanish football with CD Leganes. The Mexican had previously coached in LaLiga Santander with Osasuna, Atltico de Madrid, Real Zaragoza and Espanyol. His latest stint in Spain got off to a good start as Los Pepineros earned an impressive 1-1 draw with then joint-top side Real Sociedad.


OSCAR GARCIA IS ALSO BACK IN LALIGA

There's also new coach in the dugout at RC Celta, scar Garca. And where better to make your managerial debut than at the Camp Nou, where he came through the ranks as a player and was a coach in the academy. His side, unfortunately, weren't able to avoid a 4-1 defeat.


KUBO OPENS HIS ACCOUNT IN STYLE

Takefusa Kubo scored his first LaLiga Santander goal with a remarkable striker against Villarreal on Matchday 13. Big things are expected of the 18-year-old Japan international and he's making an early impression while on loan at RCD Mallorca this term. He has already contributed with his overall play and now he has a goal to his name as well.


THE TOP SCORER IN LALIGA SANTANDER? KARIM BENZEMA

Karim Benzema netted twice in Real Madrid's 4-0 victory at Eibar on Saturday, meaning that the Frenchman is top of the scoring charts in LaLiga Santander. With nine goals already this campaign, he leads Lionel Messi, Loren Morn and Gerard Moreno, who have all scored eight times so far.


MIXED RESULTS FOR SPAIN'S EUROPEAN TEAMS

There was European action on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and seven Spanish clubs were involved. In the Champions League, Barcelona drew against Slavia Prague, while Real Madrid beat Galatasaray, Valencia defeated Lille and Atltico de Madrid lost away at Bayer Leverkusen. There were mixed results in the Europa League too as Sevilla conquered Dudelange and Espanyol won big against Ludogorets but Getafe falling to a narrow loss at FC Basel.


GUTI BACK IN SPANISH FOOTBALL

Real Madrid legend Guti hung up his boots in 2011 and he has been working in coaching since then, spending time as a youth coach at Real Madrid and as an assistant with Beikta in Turkey. Now, he's returned to Spain with Almera for his first Head Coaching role. His side currently sit third in LaLiga SmartBank, Spain's second tier.


EKAMBI IS THE PLAYER OF THE MONTH

The LaLiga Santander Player of the Month award for October was announced last week and Karl Toko Ekambi is the recipient, winning the prize for the first time in his career. With three goals in his four LaLiga Santander matches during October, the striker was one of the main reasons behind Villarreal's impressive run of form.


LALIGA SANTANDER PLAYERS DOMINATE SPAIN SQUAD

Robert Moreno has named his squad for the Spanish national team's November Euro 2020 qualifiers. The list is dominated by Spain-based players, with 13 called up from LaLiga Santander. Sergio Ramos, Ral Albiol, Jess Navas, Dani Carvajal, Iigo Martnez, Jos Luis Gay, Pau Torres, Sergio Busquets, Santi Cazorla, Sal iguez, lvaro Morata, Mikel Oyarzabal and Gerard Moreno all made the cut.
