Argentine defender Gonzalo Montiel said this Thursday, in his presentation as a footballer for Spanish Sevilla, that he makes a stop in European football in “a fabulous, very great team, which he manages to compete and continue to grow as a player.”
Montiel, 24, who comes from the River Plate in his country, said that “Sevilla fans can expect” from him “a lot of enthusiasm, work, effort and everything he can bring to the group.”
The international right-winger stated that he is “looking forward to playing” at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium because he has been “told that the” Sevilla “fans are very similar to those of River Plate.”
In addition, Montiel is aware that “many players have come to Sevilla from River” and there is in the current Sevilla dressing room a large colony of Argentines -Alejandro ‘Pupu’ Gómez, Marcos Acuña, Erik Lamela and Lucas Ocampos- who introduced him to companions and it will make life here easier “in your first weeks.
The Buenos Aires footballer stressed that Jesús Navas, with whom he comes “to compete healthily” for the right-back position, “is mainly a good person”, but above all he is “a great reference who has won many things here.”
Gonzalo Montiel, one of those affected by the refusal of Spanish clubs to give in to the South American internationals scheduled for next week’s FIFA dates, avoided commenting on the matter because “no one” has “commented on anything yet” and has “the right to head thinking about Saturday’s game against Elche “.
