Sevilla midfielder Manuel Nolito is frustrated with life at the club due to reduced playing time and hinted he could leave at the end of the season.

The former Manchester City player completed a sensational return back to Sevilla in 2017 after Guardiola considered him as surplus to requirements at the Etihad.

However, injuries have sidelined the 32-year-old for a lengthy spell, hence missing a large chunk of the campaign.

But the pacy Spanish winger is not giving up hope and determined to return to the team when he is fit.

“This year has not gone as I would have liked, it has been the hardest of my career on a personal level. He said via Football Espana.

“But I want to continue playing here, I want to show what I can do when fit.

“I have a year left on my contract and I want to stay at Sevilla.”

With Joaquin Caparros currently installed as the interim manager until the end of the season, Nolito remains uncertain about his future at the club.

Nolito is aware that his injury record could count against him with a new manager, and he will be seeking clarifications on his future as soon as possible.

“I would like to speak to the new coach.

“If they do not see me in their future plans then I will move on.”
