As soon as he had signed his new contract as a sevillista, Éver Banega faced the official club meda: "I'm very happy to come home, because I spent my best two years here. Now I begin a new stage in my career with great enthusiasm and I'm looking forward to getting to work with my teammates and the coaching staff soon".
He may have left just over a year ago, but the supporters certainly have not forgotten him: "I spent two spectacular years here, achieving important things and people appreciate that. I also really appreciate that the club has always had its doors open to me".
The official competitive season will begin with the Champions League play-off round, an appointment which the Argentine does not want to miss despite having some days of holiday left: "I want to be ready as soon as possible, because they are very important matches. It's vital to be in the group stage of the most important competition in existence".
To conclude, he admitted that throughout the year he had kept in touch with his former teammates: "I've always been in contact with the lads. I left here on very good terms and they have welcomed me back with open arms".
