Pizarro ‘happy’ for Sevilla move

New Sevilla midfielder Guido Pizarro believes it was the ‘right moment’ to leave Mexican club Tigres to move to European football.

The 27-year-old midfielder underwent a medical in Seville over the weekend ahead of completing a switch from Mexico, and is expected to replace the outgoing Vicente Iborra.

"I was happy to take this step, but sad to leave this club,” Pizarro is quoted as saying by Diario Sport.

“It was the right moment (to leave). The board listened to my request as they knew it was one of my goals in my career (to play in Europe) and I thank them for allowing me to do so."

Pizarro will be Sevilla’s sixth Argentine in their squad: Joaquin Correa, Walter Montoya, Nicolas Pareja, Gabriel Mercado and Ever Banega are already at the Sanchez Pizjuan.
