The break must bring “signings” to Sevilla

Lopetegui takes advantage of the break to continue fine-tuning Suso and Januzaj, while Marcao completes his recovery.

Sevilla faces the national team break this September, the only one before the 2022 Qatar World Cup, at a difficult time after their poor start to the season in LaLiga and the Champions League. However, the fact that the competition has stopped is right now an advantage for Julen Lopetegui who continues to buy time to improve the performance of his team.

The technician has insisted in his last appearances in that many of the members of his staff, including several signings that arrived at the last minute, needed time to recover their physical tone. In that sense, the break should serve the Basque coach to recover troops for the return of the competition.

Set-up for Januzaj, Suso and Marcao

The absence of parties should serve so that Adnan Januzaj gets ready. The Belgian arrived on the penultimate day of the market and after not doing preseason with any team after finishing his contract with Real Sociedad. Roberto Martínez has not summoned him to the Belgian National Team and Lopetegui and his team finally have time to work with him without games in between after he only had 18 minutes in his first weeks at Nervión. A similar situation lives Suso, who is still trying to recover his competitive rhythm after the serious ankle injury he suffered in December from last year and has not yet recovered the best physical tone although he is adding more and more minutes.

Another of the signings that must take a step forward after the break is Marcao. The Brazilian has not yet made his debut due to two physical setbacks. Nevertheless, as confirmed by GOAL, his recovery is on track and if nothing goes wrong, he could finally put on the sevillista elastic when the competition returns.

In that sense, the ex of the Galatasaray already stepped on the lawn of the Sports City this Wednesday after three weeks off though he carried out fieldwork apart from his colleagues as the last steps before his recovery period can be considered over. Lopetegui already outlined in the press conference after the last duel against Villarreal that he hopes that Marcao can make a qualitative leap in defense.

Nianzou and Dolberg, back early next week

For their part, Nianzou and Dolberg do have international commitments with the Under-21s of France and Denmark that will prevent them from enjoying more sessions with Lopetegui to acclimatize to their new team.

Still, andn the case of the Danish striker, it is expected that from next Monday can return to training after his two Nations League games, on Thursday against Croatia and on Sunday against France, and the French center-back does it on Tuesday after playing on Monday against Belgium. That being the case, and if there are no setbacks, they will have no problem at least working normally in preparation for the next game against Atlético de Madrid at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
