Sevilla FCTOTwo goals and two injuries of the Argentine in four games
Gabriel Mercado did not have to be taught what a derby was. Fantico de River, traveled even to Madrid to see live the outcome of the Copa Libertadores against Boca Juniors, Sevilla player came to the Andalusian capital with all the keys of a match of the highest rivalry tattooed on his skin.Intensity, concentration and intelligence. He knows that these parties are decided by few details.He has been the protagonist of those decisive moments.
Because in the first year of the defender in Sevilla, with Sampaoli on the bench, he was almost a hero for his fans.He made the only goal of the game played in the Snchez-Pizjun in a strategy play. At Villamarn, he scored a 1-1 draw, also a stopped ball. Sevilla took that derby (1-2) with another ball stopped. Two goals and two wins, what more could he ask for.
The next year,I got to see him from the bench-Montella had just arrived and played Corchia on the side-the famous 3-5.Caparrs recruited him for Villamarn, as a lateral, but was injured before the break. A problem in the back that prevented him from finishing the last day at home against the Alavs.
Already for this year,Machn placed him in his defense of three. He had to leave the game due to a fracture of his right arm. And his team lost again. Double displeasure for a temperamental player, who gets the team that bravado and bad milk that Caparrs always asks.Partner with Carrio. The derby does not leave you indifferent. He has it tattooed on his skin.
Gabriel Mercado ends contract with Sevilla on June 30 and the decision taken, before the arrival of Monchi, was thatthat connection was finished after three years together. The central will be able to play this Saturday his last derby. You have to see the opinion of Monchi, but the player seems to have decided that it is time to change the air.
