Daniel Alves admits Sevilla are in crisis after yesterday's 1-0 home defeat to Deportivo La Coruna.

The Brazilian fullback was one of the few Sevilla players willing to speak with journalists after the game and said: "We are not the Sevilla as always.

"We're worried because we've lost our form and our identity.

"We're playing too direct and need to work hard to fix this. In the last two years we have won great respect, but now we're losing at home to teams that theoretically are weaker than us."
