I will happily leave”-€21million Tottenham player reacts when asked if he will leave spurs

Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League misfit Bryan Gil insists he is ‘very, very happy’ on loan Sevilla while not ruling out an extended stay at the La Liga outfit.


Gil must have been wondering what he had done to get on the wrong side of the footballing gods when Jorge Sampaoli was sacked at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in March. Sampaoli, a long-time admirer of the former Spain U21 international, had played a major role in bringing Gil back to Andalusia during the winter window.

Sampaoli’s replacement – much to Gil’s relief – was none other than Jose Luis Mendilibar. The man who coached Gil at Eibar, coaxing the very best out of this enigmatic talent while paving the way for his £21 million move to Spurs during a terrific loan spell in 2020/21.


Does Bryan Gil have a future at Tottenham Hotspur?

“He is a coach that I already knew. I really enjoyed him when I was at Eibar. Individually I did very well,” Gil tells Marca.

“I debuted with the national team when he trained me. Now, I have him here and I think he has brought a complete change to the team. We are all enjoying it. He is very good on a day-to-day basis and, in the end, the team notices that atmosphere on the weekends.”

Sevilla, since Mendibilar took charge, have stormed away from the relegation zone while setting up a Europa League semi-final with Juventus. And Gil, who barely played a game under Antonio Conte before leaving Tottenham on another short-term deal in January, is not ruling out extending his stay in Seville should the opportunity arrive.

“Well, I don’t know (if I will stay). The truth is that I am very, very happy here,” Gil adds. “I have been very happy at this club, but I have a contract with another club. And I think it would be disrespectful to talk about staying here.


“When I got the call from Sevilla, I talked to Conte, who was the one who had the key to let me leave. I told him that it was a good opportunity for me.

“In the end, it happened. I am playing minutes, playing in European competition and important games. That is what we were looking for.”


Gil’s future at Tottenham may depend on who takes over from Conte in North London.
