Sevilla FCLopetegui, since the beginning of July, asked Monchi to stop his departure
Nolito, who will turn 33 on Tuesday, is experiencing a situation that a few months ago was totally impossible: he enjoys ownership and recognition as a Sevilla soccer player. And it is that the Sanluqueño already thought that he would not have the possibility to succeed as a Neri footballer. Two years without prominence and with little weight. In the last of his contract, of the three he signed when he was transferred from theManchester City, has founda coach who understands and values it.
Because the Celtic, only once and at the beginning of the summer, got in touch with Monchito transfer the interest to re-dress Nolito de celeste. There was nowhite smoker. They thought of Vigo that the fruit would fall from ripe, but the attacker kept working, trying to tiethat last train as sevillista, close to home and with the thorn of not having shown all the football inside.
In a recent conversation with the sports director of Sevilla,Monchi, with BRAND, made it clear that it was Lopetegui who had endorsed this possibility."The first deep conversation with the coach, on the third day of being in Portugal (July 8-9), where I am not going, we talk about everything and he starts asking me if Nolito was closed (Celta). In fact there were no conversations. YHe told me to stop a little"Monchi reveals.
"I begin to intuit that he will have Nolito. When are we going toU.S, I live it in a minute andI see the performance of Nolito, since my chip changes completely. With Celta I only speak once. Since he told me that in Portugal, I am no longer the subject actor, but the receiver. I hope. I've already got the message from the coach, "continues the sports director, whoin the last stage of the team in Germany, at the beginning of August, "he already tells him that he will not leave".
And Lopetegui already knew what Nolito could give him in Sevilla.When he replaced Del Bosque at the head of the national teamSpanish, after the 2016 European Championship, where he was quoted in extreme Sevilla,the Basque coach still has him. He has been cited and makes him play in the first qualifying matches, even scoring a goal against Albania. His last game is a friendly against England.He had lost the initial prominence in the City. He spent too many months blank and the train from Spain left him on the platform.
The Sevilla has not stopped happening since it was mounted in the summer of 2017.With Berizzo he had continuity, but without luck. And since then he was losing place in the team. With Machin he barely had any options and he was injured from the fibula when it seemed that his head was sticking out. And just in the summer where everything indicated that it would be his goodbye,Lopetegui retrieves it for the cause. He has a year left on his contract and in Seville they don't close the door to anything, obviously negotiating an extension, at best, down.
Nolito has two goals. Nervión begins to glimpse that soccer player whom he feared when he presented himself with Celta. And all by express wish of Julen Lopetegui.
