Marquez: Vitolo will play at Sevilla

Las Palmas Coach Manolo Marquez has confirmed Vitolo will form part of his squad for Wednesday night’s clash at Sevilla.

The Spain international looks set to play his first game against Los Rojiblancos since Atletico Madrid triggered his €37.5m release clause in July, leading to the Andalucian club to bring forward a court case.

“Vitolo will be part of our squad for travelling to Sevilla,” Marquez confirmed on Cadena Cope.

“He is a calm boy and will be able to deal with the reception – we don’t know what it will be like but we are anticipating it will not be good.

“We want to give normality to this situation as we believe it requires it, but I don’t know yet if Vitolo will start or not but he does need minutes.”
