Del Nido sentenced to prison

Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido has been sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison for his role in the embezzlement of public funds in the southern Spanish town of Marbella.

The offences took place between 1999 and 2003 when Del Nido worked as lawyer and he will also have to pay the Marbella town hall €2.7 million in compensation.

Marbella's former mayor, Julian Munoz, was also sentenced to seven and half years in prison, while former urban planning adviser Juan Antonio Roca got four.

Del Nido took charge of Sevilla in 2002 and the club has since gone on to win the UEFA Cup, Copa Del Rey, Spanish Supercopa and the UEFA Supercup under his guidance.

He will appeal his sentence to Madrid's Supreme Court.
