The Danish Thomas Delaney had his first minutes as a Sevilla player in the Champions League duel against Salzburg and, apparently on the pitch, it seemed that he had spent his entire life in Nervión. The former Borussia Dortmund player gave consistency to a watery midfield but, in addition, he was the one who had the upper hand when protesting the decisions of Belarusian referee Aleksei Kulbakov.

So much so that Delaney was even reprimanded with yellow cardboard in the final moments of the match for the vehemence of his protests. Although the Sevilla fans already knew him after the knockout round of the last Champions League, in which Borussia Dortmund eliminated Lopetegui's men, the Sánchez Pizjuán attendees recognized his effort.

Sevilla will return to the league competition this Sunday against Real in San Sebastián. And Delaney has bought a lot of ballots to be a starter.
