Sevilla midfielder Jesus Navas dedicates Euro triumph to Puerta, Reyes

Sevilla midfielder Jesus Navas paid an emotional tribute after winning the Europa League.

Navas dedicated Sevilla's Europa League triumph on Friday night to the late Jose Antonio Reyes and Antonio Puerta.

The 34-year-old helped his side beat Inter Milan 3-2 to earn the Spanish side's sixth Europa League title in Cologne.

The Sevilla captain told Movistar after the final: "It is the most special day for being able to raise the cup as captain, with my Sevilla.

"This is for all the people who are not with us anymore, for Puerta, Reyes ... my godfather who has passed away. We are all captains here."
