Monchi compares Isco signing with Maradona

The Spanish star finally left Madrid and for Seville.


sporting director Monchi believes that Isco joining the club from

Real Madrid

is like signing Diego Maradona.

Isco, who joined Real Madrid from


in 2013, spent nine glorious years in this team and managed to win five Champions League titles. However, he did not find a place in Carlo Ancelotti's squad and was forced to leave the Santiago Bernabeu and join Sevilla. Now Monchi considered his presence in Seville as the transfer of Diego Maradona.

“We have bet on you because we trust you a lot. We always look for players with something special, something different, like Maradona.

“We are a very tight-knit club and we like to develop an attractive game to enable players of tremendous quality to develop their football, like Ever Banega and Mudo Vazquez. I’m not comparing you with Maradona, but here we have an environment that helps the people with talent to show it.”

After leaving Sevilla and returning to South America, Maradona played for Sevilla for one season. He played a total of 30 games for this team and scored 6 goals.
