Sevilla coach Manolo Jimenez admits he's delighted with the way their summer signings have bedded down.

Ahead of their clash with Real Madrid, Jimenez said: "I think we have succeeded in the positions we needed to strengthen, mainly because the new players have come from frontline teams.

"Alvaro Negredo comes from Almeria, Espanyol had Sergio and Didier Zokora is from Tottenham. I'm very happy with them."
