The former Spain Under-21 star is hopeful that his new side can progress in the Champions League and has targeted two victories over Dinamo Zagreb to help them on their way
Pablo Sarabia believes that the “family” atmosphere at Sevilla has allowed players such as Samir Nasri to rediscover their best level.
The Europa League holders are aiming to make progress in the Champions League this time around and on Tuesday tackle Dynamo Kiev, with the former Real Madrid youth keen to praise the approach of the Andalucian outfit, who have rejuvenated Nasri in particular.
Sarabia puts this down to the fact that Sevilla have done everything to ease the pressure on their staff.
“It is a family club that gives you all that you need, they give us affection and the player is only worried about performing well,” he told Goal . “I hope that we can keep seeing the best version of Nasri and all the new players.”
The 24-year-old is realistic about his side’s goals this season and has simply targeted European progress, and he is aware that the next two fixtures against the Croats could be vital.
“We know that going far will be difficult and that Sevilla aren’t Real Madrid or Barcelona, but we are hopeful and we will do everything to go beyond the group stage. That is our main goal and afterwards we will see what can happen in the competition,” he explained.
“It’s true that we got an important victory [at home against Lyon] but it isn’t decisive and now we have two key games that could be important for us. First we will try to win in Zagreb then top it off at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan.”
Former Spain Under-21 attacking midfielder Sarabia has played 11 times for Sevilla since arriving from Getafe in the summer, scoring three goals.
