Caparros hints Sevilla as the best club in the world

Sevilla’s Joaquin Caparros, loves the fact that Sevilla FC is currently the leader of the best domestic competition in the world: La Liga.

After last Sunday’s victory against Real Valladolid in La Liga, Sevilla FC took the top spot of the competition as sporting director Joaquin Caparros was watching from the stands of the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

This is not the first time that the Andalucian club is at the top of the table, something that is already turning into a regular thing due to how competitive the competition has become.

In recent years, there was an idea that the Premier League was the best domestic competition in the world but things have changed drastically this season.

Spain has suddenly turned into a place where we have only a seven-point gap between the first and seventh spots, with Sevilla currently having the lead but always with the need to not slip up during the competition because another club could easily take the place from them.

For now, every single Sevillista in the world can showboat all he/she wants because they don’t get to enjoy the view from up top everyday.

This is the reason why sporting director Joaquin Caparros, spoke to Cadena Cope about the club’s current situation.

“Us professionals need to remain grounded, the fans have to enjoy this moment because the reality is that we are the leading club on the best league in the world right now,” said Caparros during the interview.

“If we don’t win it by the end of the season, the frustration will also be welcome regardless. This is what I like to call growth.”

“We want to feel the demands from our fans, that will also help despite this being a game with a touch of chance.”

“We will always get injured players, or newcomers who have a hard time adapting to the club… those are aspects you can’t control but we keep growing and improving next to the biggest clubs in the world.”

“We had a summer in which we could reflect because we caught the train while it was already marching on and we hardly had time to do anything important.”

“But since then, we started looking for players who could fit the Sevilla profile so we could keep growing. But we also have to understand that we can’t really improve a group of players who can put you at the top of the competition.”

“Our manager is getting the best out of many players and he is also doing the same with the ones who need a little time. We need to determine who we get in that dressing room with extreme care, we can’t get players who don’t contribute to the cause.”

“We’ve had examples of this in the past, such as the ‘Galacticos’ and we know how well that went. We keep looking for the best options, but they have to be players who can improve us as a group and individually as well,” he concluded.

Sevilla is having a fantastic week but things could get even better on Thursday, as they will travel to Belgium where they will play against Standard Liege and attempt to secure the next round ticket in Group J of the UEFA Europa League.

Then next weekend, the Andalucian club will have to defend their lead as a visitor when they travel to Alaves.

Despite how demanding the season may get for all the Sevillistas, the atmosphere in the city has drastically changed as many of them believe that winning the title by the end of the season is completely possible.

It’s up to the squad to keep up the good pace and stay competitive until the end of the season, it won’t be an easy task but it’s far from impossible.
