Luciano Vietto confirms he chose Sevilla over Barcelona because at his age, he needs to play regularly. ‘It was my best option.’
Vietto moved to Sevilla on loan from Atletico Madrid, rejecting an offer from Catalonia that would have had him pegged as back-up to Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.
“I said yes to Sevilla because I’m a young player who needs to keep growing and Sevilla was my best option. The decision was mine,” Vietto said at his presentation, AS reports, deflecting suggestions Atleti didn’t want to strengthen Barca, a title rival.
“I’m very happy with how I have been received. It’s been a great pre-season and we go into the UEFA Super Cup in the best way. Jorge Sampaoli called me to come and he’s a great Coach. His presence was a great influence for me to be here.”
