“Sevilla today teaches football, performance, work and sacrifice,” said the association’s president.
Sevilla FC president José Castro stressed the importance of the seventh place in the UEFA Europa League final to the official media after the victory against Juventus FC: “What we have done today is huge. Eliminating a great team like Juventus, with a super-high budget in the U.S. and a squad of players with a name, reputation and experience. After winning several titles. In a season that didn’t go well, even though we had an extraordinary upline for a month and a half, we’re in both sports. Being superior to him is capable of eliminating an entire Juve. It is to be satisfied with the team, the coach and the fans who have taken the team on wings today like Manchester Day. The reality is that, without the feeling of showing their chest, when Sevilla play in this tournament, it doesn’t matter how big teams they play against, the tournament is tailor-made for us and Sevilla almost always wins”.
The president pointed out that Sevilla FC is, in the current campaign, the only Spanish team present in European competition: “It is our fetish tournament, we bet on it more than anyone else. We are very happy for the football spectacle that Today’s place has seen here, that they have seen the whole of Spain and the whole of Europe, and because we are the only Spanish team that can win the European title. It is a reality.”
José Castro also thanked Sevilla’s fans for the important support they give to the team: “The show that our fans are able to show, cheer and support our colors is something without equal. It is very difficult to stay in Sevilla when we are all going in the same direction. For a month and a half we are all going in the same direction, squad and coach. Sevilla today teaches football, performance, work and sacrifice. If It was impossible to beat that team with so many good players. We are very happy. Tomorrow, we will work for the final whether we are able to win it. In this tournament we have changed”. In conclusion, he wanted to focus on what was achieved in a new historic European night before going to the derby: “Now yes, we have a derby on Sunday. What we have achieved tonight, We’re going to enjoy that.”
