Gameiro happy for pressure

Kevin Gameiro has welcomed the pressure put on him at Sevilla, as he explains why he chose the club over other options.

The Frenchman has this week completed a move from Paris Saint-Germain to Los Nervionenses for a fee that the Spanish have reported as a cash payment of €7.5m.

Expected to act as Alvaro Negredo’s primary replacement, the 26-year-old has encouraged fans to place their expectation on him.

“I am a player who is fast, with depth, I like to play and score goals,” began Gameiro at his presentation.

“I’m very happy with the expectation of the fans and I came here because I want to play, after the past two years, and to help this team with many goals.

“I am here because Sevilla are an important club that plays good football and I like the philosophy that they have proposed.

“The first impressions are very good, the city is very nice and I hope that my family also likes it.”
