Sevilla coach Alvarez denies Fabiano rift

Sevilla coach Antonio Alvarez denies a rift with Luis Fabiano after freezing him out of their clash with Racing Santander.

Fabiano, who last month penned a new contract to remain at Sevilla, recently expressed his frustration at life on the bench after playing just 14 minutes of action so far this season.

Alavarez said: "The other day he had a physical problem and now he doesn't, but we have to remember we have another game on Sunday, then another on Thursday....we need to think a bit about this.

"I have no type of complaint with Luis, but I still think he can give more and I'm sure he's going to do just that. He is still very important for us."
