French defender Benoit Tremoulinas has moved to reveal that he will be leaving Sevilla at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old will be out of contract in June and it is now clear he will not be offered a new deal at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Tremoulinas missed the entire season through a difficult knee injury, and that was probably the main reason why the club officials opted against extending his stay.
The Frenchman announced his exit in an open letter to the Sevilla fans.
“Friends and supporters of Sevilla, it is time for me to leave Sevilla FC,” wrote Tremoulinas in the open letter on the club’s website.
“This third year at the club has been difficult due to my knee injury, but I’ll never forget my first two seasons with our two triumphs in the Europa League.
“I’ve discovered an exceptional city here, with an incredible stadium and fantastic supporters like the Biris Norte, here are people with great modesty and generosity.
“I want to thank the club and everyone who works there who have supported me through good and bad times. I’d also like to thank the medical team and the coaching staff.
“I’d like to thank Monchi and Unai Emery, who helped me reach a higher level in my career. A mention for my teammates, who are all fantastic without exception, and Jorge Sampaoli’s staff, with whom I would have liked to work with more.
“To finish, I would like to wish the best of luck to (Sevilla sporting director) Oscar Arias.”
