Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano has admitted that he is having a difficult time regaining fitness after his exertions at the World Cup finals, and that he is "never satisfied" in his football career.
The Brazilian striker’s poor form for the Andalucian club has seen him cut a frustrated figure this season, added to the World Cup quarter-final defeat to the Netherlands, as well as competing in the tournament itself, things have taken their toll on his physical fitness.
In an interview with FIFA.com, Fabiano added that he is working hard to try to recapture his form, saying: “After the World Cup, I did not have a long pre-season and so did not have good preparations for the season. Now I am working hard to regain my form and return to normal, which for me is to play and score goals.
“Losing a World Cup wearing the shirt of the Brazilian team is undoubtedly the most frustrating incident of my career. Within the group there was a pleasant climate during the victories. After the defeat, everything changed and there was total sadness.”
Fabiano, who was linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur and Marseille during the summer, reiterated his stance that he does not enjoy being on the bench for Sevilla, and will need to consider his future if he continues to be in and out of the side.
He added: “My opinion remains the same. I am a player with ambition. I am never satisfied and I do not like staying on the bench, especially after what I’ve done in recent seasons. I know that I have the strength and I will show that’s I’m still the same player.”
