The worst signings in the history of Sevilla

The worst signings in the history of Sevilla

In recent years, Sevilla was marked by the signing of unknown players, at very low cost, which they have given a great performance, as Dani Alves, Adriano and Keita. But nevertheless, It has not always been so, and there have been big mistakes, as Koné, Acosta from Machlas. From Colgados do a small selection of ten of these players did not give the performance expected.

Lautaro Acosta

With 20 years, Sevilla signed for a 7 million to one of the players with the greatest of league Argentina, a slight playmaker who blunted in Lanús. Only 29 matches and a goal (Athletic Bilbao, in Copa del Rey) They are the baggage of a signing that ended out very expensive. After two assignments to Racing Santander and Boca Juniors, He ended again in Lanús, where did this season 6 goals in 30 matches.

Tom De Mul

An example of the failure to adapt to a new country. The signing of Belgian 2007 made illusion sevillismo, sold as the new Pearl Ajax. Nothing could be further from the truth. We must say in his favor that he met the best band right hand of Europe at the time (Alves-Navas), but only 9 parties in 5 seasons belonged to Sevilla is something that is not acceptable.

Petro Marinakis

Greek, long straight hair (with a strong resemblance to Mario Vaquerizo), He landed in Seville in summer 1996 to complement the best player that Sevilla, Greek fellow Tsartas. 11 parties and more than a heart attack to some sevillista fan touched the ball when his career was in Nervion.

Arouna Koné

Rather than quality football (He could barely play between injury and injury), Koné inclusion in this selection is due to bad luck. The 12 million euros paid by the Ivorian (most expensive signing until the arrival of Negredo) They were a hard slab for a player who was just beginning in this football. Again, match Kanoute and Luis Fabiano did him no good, and after several serious injuries, He ended up scoring a lot of goals in the Levant and being signed for Wigan. Definitely, the worst price ratio signing in the history of Sevilla.

Kone was a fiasco sporting and economic level for Sevilla. I triumphed in the Levant yielded by the Andalusian.

 André-Jöel Eboue

"The goalkeeper rubber". With that nickname, saw coming was not going to end well the story. Not a single party in Nervion in that 1996/1997, after competition with Monchi and Casagrande, and little to tell this stranger who shared Cameroonian home with Lucio Wagner both being killed in the winter.

Lucio Wagner

Come and say in his presentation that was "new and improved version of Roberto Carlos". That was the best thing he did this Brazilian left back in Nervion. Housemate of said Eboué, 9 games played for Sevilla (including friendly, yes) and low in the winter federative.

Eboue are Wagner, two of the greatest horrors of Sevilla.

Axel

Another signing of that season 1997 in which Sevilla FC descended to Second Division. A year in which he played 24 of the 42 league matches, only finishing 13 of them and scoring a goal is the baggage of Brazil in Nervion, plus a nickname, "The Cobra", even remembered at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan-.

Christian Colusso

He came in 1996 dubbed the "new Maradona". Everyone knows that comparisons are odious, but this comparison must have had jail felony. 6 games played for Sevilla after the big amount of the transaction (being the most expensive signing several years) and a great scandal lio commission for the club representatives and scams.

Jean-Manuel Thetis

Billion pesetas (some 6 millions of euros) It is what paid the French defense Sevilla this happened with much more pain than glory for Nervion. Twelve games with the Seville club was his career in the Spanish League, and more meaningless kicked an opponent. Just one goal, that if, in a friendly against San Fernando, It was his offensive contribution.

Federico Magallanes

Uruguayan forward-looking telenovela heartthrob who spent more time watching the game from the bench in the field. Be the worst signing of several teams can make you rethink your football career, but the lanky striker has the honor of playing at Real Madrid, Sevilla FC or Torino, for example. 5 matches played in Sevilla, He is very remembered two goals he scored against Racing Santander in Nervion. It was all he did in Seville.

Del Nido stung and Magellan signed for Sevilla. It did not work out.
