Castro ‘thrilled’ with Sevilla start

Sevilla president Jose Castro has expressed his delight with his club's start to the season following a summer change in management and a large squad overhaul.

The five-time Europa League winners sit third in LaLiga, a point off leaders Atletico and Castro has called on them to improve further as he believes that more trophies are within their grasp.

"We are thrilled, and the truth is that we want to continue to improve," Castro told the club's website.

"With [Manchester] City, we are the only team to have won all of our home games and that says something.

"Our stadium is very difficult for any opponent and we are able to create an atmosphere like no other during games. We have to thank the fans for that and for their support.

"I hope we can continue to win [titles], but it's difficult. We have to value what we have achieved and be realistic.

"We don't just want to be in the Champions League once in a while.

"To be there every year is what we aspire to, and the financial effort in order for that to happen is the biggest the club has made in our history.

"We signed players and increased our budget in order to heighten our objectives.

"We have a lot of new faces, and it always takes time to adapt and to find the rhythm. We want them to perform even better."
