Sevilla: In's & Out's

Written by
After the great success of last season that landed them 4th place in the league and make the playoff’s, there’s been a huge turnaround in the squad as many high profile players have left to go onto bigger things.
Ivan Rakitic, Wesley Sneijder, Dani Alves and Cesar Azpilicueta were all the casualties of the extravagant spending in the market and the wage bill of the previous season. There are four new players who have joined on a 1 year contract, with the option to extend after the first season. First up;
Bernat is a very pacey offensive fullback, with a pinpoint cross that will bring something new to the Sevilla attacking play. His ball control and dribbling make him difficult to close down and coupled with his pace, makes him extremely dangerous going forward. We expect many chances will be created from him and his teamwork with Diego Perotti will be something to keep an eye on for this season.
Sebastian is a box-to-box machine, his relentless effort for the team is noticeable to all, even when his team are behind in the match. He has no spectacular skills, but relies on his supreme fitness to make a difference. He is adept at both moving forward and defending. His natural position in the Sevilla squad is still up for debate, whether he will stay deep and play as a defensive midfielder or play as a standard central midfielder. The first few matches will determine this. We expect him to be the big difference in holding onto a result.
Patrick is a player that we’ve come to expect at Sevilla, a prolific winger. He has very good dribbling skills and even more lethal pace, but that’s not all. He has some technical gifts, a low lofted pass and a pinpoint cross, the combination of these will create some dangerous crosses and incisive passes into space. He also has a good ability to score goals, being an almost natural both footed player, it’s difficult for defenders to see which way he will go and what he will do, cut inside across or into the box, or whip in a cross. The perfect player to team up with Muller and Perotti, the trio of M.P.H will be exciting to watch this season.
Sandro is a very good addition to the squad as a whole, and although he will be on the bench for the majority of the season, he is an outstanding player to bring into a game late on. Still a young player and a great chance of developing into a great first team player. Last minute goals is something that will be expected from him this season, and the possibility of a first team spot.
