Lopetegui, the reason for Nolito continuing at Sevilla

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 98

The Sevilla winger Nolito and his current coach Julen Lopetegui already knew each other. They were together when Lopetegui was the Spain coach and according to the sporting director, Monchi, the coach was the reason Nolito stayed at Sevilla. Monchi made these comments to 'Marca'.

The Sevilla player Nolito is in a very different situation to that of a few months ago. The attacker, unlike last season, has the confidence of his coach, Julen Lopetegui. 

Celta were interested in the winger throughout the summer, but the sporting director, Monchi, told 'Marca' that he commented all sorts with Lopetegui and "on his third day in Portugal", he started asking him "if Nolito's deal was done."

The coach told Monchi to "calm down a little bit" and from that moment in time, he started to "gather" that Nolito would be at Sevilla. "When we went to USA, I followed that tour minute by minute and I saw Nolito's performances." He then said he knew he was staying after that

It was after Sevilla's tour of Germany when Lopeteguoi confirmed the news that Monchi wanted to hear: that Nolito was staying. The man from Cadiz has scored two goals in his six appearances so far this season.
