After six and a half seasons at FC Porto, and six months before the end of his contract with the Dragons, Corona moved to Seville.
Jesús Corona left FC Porto in January and signed for Sevilla, a club that had long followed the Mexican. And that the striker wanted too, as he admitted in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca.
“I said it then and I’ll say it again, I’ve been waiting for this signing for a while. The possibility of coming here excited me a lot and when I got on the plane I was like ‘finally, thank God'”. “. that we had reached. But it was the first step because there is still a long way to go. [Sevilha] they insisted that I was flattered and working harder and harder. It pushed me because I knew I had this responsibility, that they would come for me,” said Tecatito, who calls himself “more mature.”
“I arrived at Sevilla a little more mature. I also have personal goals, I try to go further in terms of effort, to make more assists, more goals, trying to help the ‘team,” he revealed.
The relationship with Andalusian coach Julen Lopetegui is good, Corona said, also explaining what the Spaniard is asking of him. “Lopetegui asks me more defensively, to close the spaces. You work so as not to suffer, that’s the most important thing. (…) He is getting better and better. He is very calm because he trusts the team And that’s what we want in the group.”
“First, there was the coach who knew me and spoke to him, and second, I wanted to come to this league, I had the goal, like a dream, to play here. It’s very competitive, with a lot of quality, in my opinion has always been the best league in the world,” added the former dragon.
Since joining Sevilla, Corona has featured in 11 games and provided two assists.
