Jesús Navas: “There has been no call proposing my continuity”

The Sevilla captain gives details of his sad goodbye

“I have always felt that I could stay here as long as I wanted, but no one has cleared up my doubts”


Sevilla captain Jesús Navas addressed his fans this Friday to say goodbye to the club of his life, which became official on Thursday, to regret that the Nervión board has not proposed his continuity or contract renewal. .

“I have read that they say that I had made the decision a long time ago, but, with all due respect, that was not the case. I tried to explain my departure from Sevilla FC when some of my teammates asked me and I told them that it was crazy for me. what I’m experiencing. Only because I understand that I can’t see my Sevilla like that,” the player himself writes in a post on the ‘X’ social network.

In addition, Navas pointed to the long-term problems with the last tough campaign. “I already went through this situation last year when I had a contract and, despite the tough year, I fought to move forward and I was faced with the same situation as this year. But I was not decided, because only those closest to me know how difficult it is. which was for me to think of a way out,” he points out.

“Because it is my Seville, and because there has been no call, none, from those who should have proposed my continuity. But it is even more painful to face that after communicating it there was no ‘wait, let’s see’. It has always occurred to me that I could be here as long as I wanted, but no one has cleared up my doubts that at the end of the season there would be that call confirming my continuity,” adds the player with the most games and the most titles for the club.

Navas hoped to “be back soon to” help Sevilla and ended with another “painful topic.” “They have said that I left for a better offer, but if it had been for that, I would not have been in the team of my soul practically my entire career,” he says.

In addition, the Spanish international showed himself at the service of Luis de la Fuente for this summer’s Euro Cup. “I also don’t have a team because I want to focus body and soul on my country, whom I hope to help in the future, just as I have done with honor with my Sevilla,” concludes the letter from Navas, who still has two league games left. the last one in a week against FC Barcelona at the Sánchez-Pizjuán.
