Jesus 'Tecatito' Corona could make his debut for Sevilla tomorrow against Betis in the Copa del Rey, according to statements made by Julen Lopetegui, the current coach of the Spanish national team.
The coach already knew the player when they were both part of Porto and did not hesitate to describe the qualities of the Mexican player.
And although he did not dare to confirm that the player could line up tomorrow with the Blanquirrojos, the coach pointed it out as a possibility.
Just today, Sevilla FC presented the player to the media and fans of the club through a video that showed the first hours of the player in the team.
In the video the player is accompanied by his wife and two children, even the Sevilla board of directors had a pair of jerseys prepared for the Mexican player's family, making his reception at the Spanish club very warm.
Why does Lopetegui think "Tecatito" is ready to make his Copa del Rey debut tomorrow?
The tactician spoke clearly about the Sevillian Derby and clarified that he hopes to be able to count on Corona tomorrow to help them in the match.
He also stressed that he is waiting to see how things evolve from today to tomorrow. Lopetegui reviewed how the club's players are doing for tomorrow's important match.
"In the end there are several scenarios open. We have been able to train with some, others have been in the gym, others have done specific work. We have to wait until tomorrow morning to make decisions on where we are going," said the strategist.
Lopetegui spoke about the characteristics of "Tecatito" in a press conference
The coach and former goalkeeper spoke at length about the characteristics of the Mexican winger and emphasized that Corona is a multifunctional player, who can provide solutions at important moments in matches.
"Jesus comes to help us, to give us solutions in any front of the attack, both on the right and on the left, he is a guy who can play on both sides and even as a winger, he has done it and done it well. He is a player with good characteristics for what we want, what we are looking for and he will surely help us. He is also an experienced player," Lopetegui said.
Tecatito" was officially presented today at his new club
The player was presented today to the media and fans of the team as the club's first reinforcement for this season.
Through a video, the player was seen arriving at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium, home of Sevilla, and not only that, the player was greeted with recorded messages from his former teammates Iker Casillas and Javier "Chicharito" Hernández.
In this way, the player becomes the third Mexican to wear the Sevilla uniform. The previous three were Gerardo Torrado, Miguel Layún and Javier Hernández, who failed to stand out at the Spanish club.
However, there are high expectations for Corona, who is a multi-functional player. He also has the confidence of the coach, who already coached the Mexican attacker from 2010 to 2014 at Porto.
