The first signing of the 2022 team led by Julen Lopetegui. Mexican striker Jesús “Tecatito” Corona became a Sevilla player after reaching an agreement with Porto de Portugal. This was announced by the Andalusian LaLiga Santander club this Friday through its social networks and an official statement.
The Mexican forward has a community passport and could be released with the red and white colors quickly, since his call would be in the duel against Real Betis in the duel that will take place at Benito Villamarin this Saturday.
Corona was part of the Mexico team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and now he will be with Sevilla until 2025, coming from Porto.
“Sevilla and Porto have reached an agreement for the incorporation to the Sevilla team, until 2025, of Jesús Manuel Corona, a Mexican player with a Portuguese passport who plays on the right wing”, reported the Spanish club in a statement.
It should be noted that ‘Tecatito’ began his career in 2010 with Monterrey in Mexico, and three years later he arrived in the Netherlands to play for Twente. His good role in the Dutch tournament took him to Porto in 2015. With the Portuguese team he won the league in the 2017-2018 and 2019-2020 seasons, the Portuguese Cup in the 2019-2020 season and the Super Cups in 2019 and 2021 .
“Hello sevillistas, very happy to be here with you, very anxious and excited to be on the pitch giving a lot of joy”, Corona said in a video published by the Sevilla club.
Likewise, Corona maintained that he had been waiting a long time for their arrival: “I think I had already wanted this moment to pass for more than a year. My family and I already needed a change of scene and coming here is amazing. I hope to return that confidence on the pitch.”
