Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez ‘understands’ the frustration of Sevilla fans at the nature of Vitolo’s departure from the club this summer.
The Spain international looks set to play his first game against Los Rojiblancos since Atletico Madrid triggered his €37.5m release clause in July, leading to the Andalucian club to bring forward a court case.
The winger then joined hometown club Los Amarillos on a loan deal until January and could be in a for a less than welcome reception at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan.
“I understand Sevilla fans and the president are highly annoyed at the situation,” Ramirez is quoted as saying by Marca.
“But historically speaking there has been a magnificent relationship between the clubs and it would be wrong for that to change because of a situation like this.
“Players regularly change teams and alter the course of their careers, and this is simply one of those instances.
“However, the deal has all been processed and the player is now with Las Palmas, so we all must move on.”
