Krychowiak: ‘Poles backing Sevilla’

Sevilla’s Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak believes his team will have the backing of his countrymen in Warsaw next week.

The Andalusians take on Dnipro in the Europa League final on Wednesday and Poland international Krychowiak says it will be a special moment for him when he steps out on to the pitch at the National Stadium.

“It’s going to be special, a unique moment, but it will also be a difficult game because Dnipro eliminated a great team like Napoli,” the 25-year-old told reporters.

“However, our minds must be focused on winning because people only remember the winners, not the losers.

“But first of all we have to win at Malaga on Saturday as finishing fourth is another challenge this team faces.”

Meanwhile, Los Rojiblancos’ French defender Timothee Kolodziejczak, born to a Polish father and a Martiniquais mother, admits he has “never been to Poland” but hopes to “provide a victory for our Polish families”.

“To reach a final in my first year at Sevilla is a great reward but right now I’m focused on the match at Malaga, which is also important,” he added.
