JOSÉ CASTRO: 'THE EUROPA LEAGUE IS WELL ON TRACK AND WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE'

'Since his arrival, Monchi has transmitted calm in how he has been running things,' he said

Sevilla FC's president, José Castro, attended the media this Tuesday and went over the team's current form: 'We're really happy with the weekend's result. We love to win the derby and we're happy we managed to do so. What's really important is that we got the three points - that puts us on 52 and gives us a gap over those below us. The Europa League is well on track and we're going to fight for the Champions League.'

'Sevilla is going to fight for the fourth place. There are a lot of teams fighting for it but we're the ones there at the moment. We're in a great run of form with 12 points from 15. The team has been great since Caparrós took over and he did so in what we felt was the right moment. We are happy with the decision and I believe it was the right one,' commented the president regarding Sevilla's good run.

'We have to keep on picking up points. We will wait until the end of the season to see what happens with Caparrós'

Regarding whether or not Caparrós would continue coaching next season, José Castro stated 'right now our focus is on picking up points and that the team enjoys their football. We will have to wait and see what happens but Monchi himself has said that Joaquín has evolved a lot and that he could be an option. Not only for what he achieves, but also for what he transmits to the team, but we'll have to wait until the end of the season.'

'Since his arrival, Monchi has transmitted calm in how he has been running things. But right now we are focusing on Getafe and only Getafe,' the president said regarding the renewal of players' contracts, particularly Sarabia's.

'Caparrós is with us due to his professionalism: he is happy, calm and enjoying himself'

Finishing up, José Castro highlighted once more the great job Caparrós is doing and he wanted to send a message of calm regarding his health: 'There is no one better than Caparrós to know the right strategy with this squad, he's the one who put it together. He said it was a top squad and the results are showing that. I want to send a message of calm - the doctors are calm and he just has to be monitored. Caparrós is happy, calm and enjoying himself. He is here because he is a Sevillista and also because he is a model professional.'
