At the beginning of this century Sevilla enjoyed the most successful years in the history of the club. Years which gave them 6 trophies and even statistical recognition form the IFFHS as the best club in the world! From here they’ll have to start again. Sevilla don’t want to be remembered as past champions. They want to become new challengers once again. After a couple of seasons in the wilderness they’re now free of expectation and ready to go again.

Under new coach Marcelino, this team promises to excite. His teams are known to be aggressive, quick and ambitious, something Jose Maria Del Nido sought after when searching for his new coach. Marcelino has a footballing curriculum very similar to that of Juande Ramos when he arrived at the Sanchez Pizjuan at the beginning of Sevilla’s aforementioned glory years.

As part of the rebuilding process Del Nido has paid for an all action midfielder in Piotr Trochowski, the best centre back in last year’s second division, Coke, and versatile forward Manu del Moral. Add to these three a foot soldier of a defender in Bosnian Spahic, the two winter signings Medel and Rakitic, and the full signing of former loanee Martin Caceres, who enjoyed a fantastic Copa America for champions Uruguay, and you’re looking at a new and formidable Sevilla.

Whilst veterans such as Renato, Dragutinovic and Luis Fabiano have left the club, three still remain from Sevilla’s glory years: Andres Palop will fight with Xavi Vares for the number 1 jersey. Escude will take his place in the back four, while Frederic Kanoute will look to continue his fantastic goal scoring record in the Sanchez Pizjuan.

The talisman of this Sevilla side is Alvaro Negredo, top Spanish goal scorer in La Liga last season who has now lost all ties with Real Madrid: They had a buy back clause which has now expired. He is now a 100% Sevillista and he has a special challenge ahead as he aims to become Sevilla’s second ever Pichichi winner, after the great Juan Arza who won it in 1954-55.
