Brazilian defender Alex Telles has revealed that he didn’t have to think twice about making the loan switch from Manchester United to Sevilla.
Telles was signed two years ago by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but has struggled to nail down a first-team spot with Luke Shaw the first choice in his position.
Last season he was given opportunities, making 26 appearances, but the arrival of Tyrell Malacia was always going to further hamper his minutes.
Telles was also recently involved in a bust-up with youngster Hannibal Mejbri following the defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion back in May.
The pair had to be dragged apart and then boss, Ralf Rangnick, even cut training short. Erik ten Hag was aware of the confrontation and has allowed Telles to leave, with Mejbri – who is highly rated by those at the club – expected to feature this season.
Telles has now opened up on his move in a chat with Estadio Deportivo: “I’m very happy to be at this great club. From the first moment I got the message to come here, I didn’t think twice. I’m ready and prepared for this important week in which La Liga begins.”
He added: “In life, we go step by step. Now I’m here and I’m going to think about this important year for everyone. I don’t think about the future. The future depends on now.
“I want to do things well and give my best. I’m proud of how my career is developing because I’ve come this far and through all the great clubs I’ve been through. There are no difficulties for me, I’m always positive thinking and willing to work hard to get where I want.”
