Lucas Ocampos: Why I chose Sevilla

Lucas Ocampos has explained his decision to move to Sevilla.

The Argentina attacker left Olympique Marseille this summer for Sevilla.

Ocampos told L'Equipe: "I hope to continue growing here. Other clubs wanted me but I chose Sevilla because it is a historical club, composed of great players.

"It was partly a family choice, it was important for my family and for me to go to a country where we already speak the language. I talked to friends who played here and they all told me good things.

"The competition is tough, I have to be on top every day. I will try to be consistent as I have been in the past two seasons to go further in the Europa League and try to catch a title with this team, which is very competitive."
