Sevilla boss Pablo Machin admits ‘he never dreamed’ the club would be top of La Liga after 13 rounds of matches.
The Andalusian club went top of the league on Sunday following a 1-0 win over Real Valladolid was coupled with Barcelona’s draw at Atletico Madrid on Saturday evening.
“I had never dreamed we would be league leaders at this stage,” Machin told Onda Cero.
“But I’m not a dreamer, I am quite realistic but we know that when we compete well and reach our level, we will have success.
“The draw in the Wanda was the result that we wanted but we do not want to think of other games or depend on other sides, we just have to play our own game.
“Things can change very quickly in this league but I have said that from the beginning and football is a game of passion and for dreaming, so we will allow our fans to do that.
“We are performing at a very high level and are above teams historically destined to fight for the top positions so we will savour this position and push for more.
“We have worked hard and we will continue to do so.”
