Sevilla have fired Ever Banega as they have done so many times with players who are already legend of the institution. “Today is one of those days that no one likes, least of all a president. We fired the leader of an era, a three-time UEFA champion. The magician of Sánchez-Pizjuán leaves with 238 games, 7 finals, 3 Titles”. Those have been the words of José Castro to recognize the trajectory and weight that the Argentine has had in the five seasons that he has played in the club.
“All the great footballers who have played for Sevilla will forgive me, but in the 20 years that I have been sports director, the player with the highest quality who has been here is Éver Banega.” That has been among others the reflection that Monchi has made of one of the best footballers who signed for Sevilla.
And between tears the protagonist of the morning said that “each of the 238 games I played with this shirt was worth it. I did it defending the most important club of my life.” Banega in his letter of gratitude included an acknowledgment to the entity stating that “they have taught me not to give up” and remembering as a special moment “the final played against Dnipro, in which I was able to share the field with José Antonio Reyes.”
