Sevilla manager, Machin: “Whoever wants Nzonzi must pay his release clause or make an offer that meets our expectations.”

Sevilla manager Pablo Machín spoke ahead of his side’s Europa League first-leg fixture with Zalgiris and was asked about Steven Nzonzi. These are his words:

“If a club wants to Nzonzi, they will have to pay his release clause (€40 million) or make an offer that meets the expectations of Sevilla. He’s not a world champion by chance, he’s important to us. I am counting on him.”
