Sevilla and Inter 'honor' Banega's European adventure

More than 13 years after arriving from Boca, the Argentine midfielder says goodbye with a final between the last two clubs of his career on the other side of the pond.

They could not have prepared it better: Éver Banega will leave European football honored by Sevilla and Inter, the last two teams on an adventure across the pond that began for him almost 13 years ago, in January 2008, when he arrived to Valencia from Boca Juniors, change of 18 million euros. Éver had not yet reached 20.

Months later, the team that yielded to Atlético de Madrid to play there in 2008-2009. He did not stay at the Calderón and at Mestalla he never had the confidence of the coaches. After another six-month assignment at Newell's, in his native rosary, in the summer of 2014 Monchi saw a bargain in his signing and for 2.5 million he took him to Seville, where Unai Emery was waiting for him, who already had him as Valencianist. The Basque coach trusted him from the beginning and Banega began to give Nervión the best years of his sports career. He won two Europa Leagues (the third in three years for Sevilla) but his contract expired in 2016 and he went precisely to Inter.

In Milan he was not happy. He did not adapt to the city, nor to the way of playing Italian football, nor to the team ... And after a season, at Sánchez Pizjuán they saw the possibility of rescuing him in exchange for 7 million. It was worth them. In three more seasons he has continued to rule the Nervionian midfield and wants to put the finishing touches to his Sevilla career with one more title, on Friday, in Cologne. Then he will go to the Al Shabab of Saudi Arabia.
