Lucien Agoume remains grateful for his experience at Inter Milan after making his transfer to Sevilla.
The Spanish club officially announced the signing of the 21-year-old on Wednesday. He joins on loan with the option to buy at the end of the season.
In his first interview as a Sevilla player, the Frenchman expressed his joy for making the move. He’s eager to join his new teammates, especially the legendary Sergio Ramos.
“I’m very happy to be here, I can’t wait to train and play with my teammates,” said the youngster in his interview with Sevilla’s official website via FcInter1908.
“It’s a very happy day for me and my family. I was very calm because the negotiations with Sevilla went smoothly.
“I love football and I understand what Sevilla represents. It’s a great club and a beautiful city.
“Making the decision was very easy for me. Sergio Ramos is a football legend. For me, sharing the locker room with him will be a great pleasure.”
New Sevilla Signing Lucien Agoume Will Carry His Inter Milan Experience In His Heart
On the other hand, Agoume remains appreciative of his time with the Nerazzurri. He proclaims that the club will remain in his heart, but admits the difficulties of integrating himself into a locker room filled with stars.
“Joining Inter at that time was an excellent decision. We spoke with the directors and we both wanted the move.
“It was an important decision for a 17-year-old boy. I arrived there with my family and I will always be grateful to the club.
“Even though I only played a little, those five years will always remain in my heart.
“It wasn’t easy to enter a dressing room of world-class players at just 17 years of age, but it was a necessary step for my growth and development. It was what I needed to do to reach this level.”
Agoume also recalled the Europa League final between Inter and Sevilla in August 2020.
The midfielder was cheering on his Nerazzurri teammates from the stands, but the Andalusians emerged victorious by three goals to two.
“I was at the stadium. It was a tough day for me. I was only 17, and for us at Inter, the Europa League was very important.
“We were all disappointed but that’s life. You have to get up and start again. Sevilla are a strong team and have a great history in the Europa League. Winning it seven times is crazy!”.
