Sevilla FC: ‘Tecatito’ Corona, the first winter reinforcement for Lopetegui | sports

“He is a very good player. It’s a shame that he goes to the rival team ”, stated Andrés Guardado, Betis player, of his compatriot and friend Jesús Tecatito Corona, who has become Sevilla’s first winter signing. Born in Hermosillo, Mexico, Corona, 29, has signed a contract with the Andalusian club until 2025. He comes from Porto and Sevilla has paid around three million euros for a footballer who finished his contract in June of this year .

Corona was always the object of desire for the Andalusian club. In the summer of 2019, Sevilla already tried to sign this versatile player, who can act as a winger on both bands, as a midfielder and also as a right-back. He then found the more than 25 million that Porto was asking for him. Sevilla has waited for their chance and has even advanced their recruitment to this winter market when they had agreed to arrive next June. Having just landed in the capital of Andalusia, it is not ruled out that he can play the Cup derby against Betis this Saturday (9:30 pm).

Corona’s arrival at this time is due to two reasons. The first, the significant number of casualties that is devastating Sevilla. Between long-term injuries, the impact of the coronavirus and the African Cup (Bono, Munir and En-Nesyri dispute the tournament with Morocco), coach Julen Lopetegui has been training with only 10 players from the first team in a decisive stretch of the season . “We need players and good guys,” the coach went on to affirm in his last public appearance. The second reason responds to the behavior of Monchi, the sports director of Sevilla. The executive wanted to reward the coach with the arrival of a footballer that Lopetegui wanted for a long time and with whom he coincided at Porto.

“They have deserved the arrival of reinforcements,” Monchi himself joked about the requests of the coaching staff. Fulfilling Lopetegui’s wish has made Monchi pay the three million euros when he had the player free in June. In addition, Corona is a footballer who works essentially on the right wing, where Ocampos is offering a great performance. The signing of a footballer for the left zone was assumed, which could come later. In addition, some coaches appreciate that Corona can play as a right back. Jesús Navas has not quite recovered and Montiel is playing it all without replacement.

Corona has been one of the best footballers in the history of Porto, where he arrived in 2015. He was proclaimed the best player in the Portuguese League in the 2019-2020 season and has played 286 games for the Portuguese club in which he has scored 31 goals. . In this course he had already played 17 games with Porto, in many of them as a right back. He has won two Leagues and a Cup with Porto. He has been international with Mexico 63 times and has 10 goals. He played for the Mexican team in the 2018 World Cup in Russia and has a Portuguese passport.
