Sevilla FCTOMonchi tells the way to the successes of the Andalusian club through ambition
“I remember the trip inplane back from Eindhoven, celebrating that title that we thought we were not going to live anymore. And the president of that time approached me,Jos Mara of the Nest, and he said these words to me:“What, enjoying? You have little left because tomorrow we have to start working on a more ambitious project”.Monchi, Seville’s general sports director, places this example as thephilosopher’s stone of the Andalusian club, a way of looking nonconformistly at the future whose fruits are the best years in Seville’s history.
Thatnonconformity or ambition, without generating frustration at setting something unreal as a goal, is one of theskillswho has wanted to teach the island in a new chapter of hismasterclass. A second class onsoft skillsthat started with that ambitious message thatstarted in Del Nido and has remained with Jos Castro. The other four skills relevant to achieving success managing the strings of a club are:adaptability, confidence, resilience and commitment.
Within that commitment, Monchi highlights that“You don’t have to be a Sevilla player” to work at the club, but it is an added value.Because that identification with colors or with a shield will always help you to be committedable to “do more than your share”. In the successes of Seville it has also helped that theown players identify with the club, giving that plus at specific moments.
That and thetrust.“We won the Europa League on Turn thanks to the group’s confidence in achieving it”Monchi, who knows how few are the path to dreams, assures. And it all starts from work and the ambition to achieve what at some point seemed impossible to achieve.The best is yet to comeIt was a motto that Seville imposed a decade ago.And today it is still the carrot that each Sevilla player pursues.
