Reading to Sevilla
According to sources coming out of Portugal, Daniel Carrico has signed for Sevilla, after the club met his release clause of 1.8 million euros from Reading. The defender had been on loan from the English club for the entirety of last season, and after some impressive performances, Sevilla decided to make the move a permanent one. Now, Carrico can look to the future and attempt to put a nightmare-ish last two seasons behind him. Initially touted as Portugal’s golden boy when he burst onto the scene at Sporting during the 2008-2009 season, Carrico became a victim of Sporting’s fall from grace. Loss of favor from Sporting’s managers coupled with injury meant that Carrico has found it tough until recently. At Sevilla this past season, though, Carrico has flourished as the side impressed in La Liga and were eventual champions of the Europa League. It will be interesting to see if this move helps Carrico’s chances of playing for the National Team.
