Nolito: If Sevilla do not want me I will leave

Sevilla midfieler Nolito has said that he will leave the club if the new manager decides he has no place for the former Manchester City player.

Nolito, 32, has missed a large chunk of the 2018-19 season with a serious ankle injury an he is not set to be back in action until at least April, but he is determined to return to the team when he is fit.

"This year has not gone as I would have liked, it was been the hardest of my career on a personal level. 

"But I want to continue playing here, I want to show what I can do when fit.

"I have a year left on my contract and I want to stay at Sevilla."

The club recently sacked manager Pablo Machin, with Joaquin Caparros taking caretaker charge until the end of the season, when a decision on the manager will be made.

Nolito is aware that his injury record could count against him with a new manager, and he will be seeking clarifications on his future as soon as possible.

"I would like to speak to the new coach.

"If they do not see me in their future plans then I will move on."
