Let’s rewind the tape, but not by much. End of May, stands of Sanchez Pizjuan. On the red seats of the Sevilla stadium the scattered players talk to journalists ahead of the Europa League final with Roma. We are with Papu Gomez. That he smiles, laughs and makes you laugh a lot. Nice, relaxed, happy. The year in Seville was complicated, starting with Lopetegui, passing through Sampaoli and ending with Mendilibar. Several weeks in the relegation zone, but two flashes: for Papu the participation in the World Cup won by Argentina, for Sevilla the ride to Budapest. We ended the interview with this question.
