Speaking in an interview with Marca, Sevilla captain Jesús Navas admitted he’s ready for the return to La Liga action against cross-city rivals Real Betis on Thursday.

Betis have a great team with some key players. We have to be ready and focused for what will be a tricky game.”

It’s lovely that we are the captains [Navas and Joaquin] and that we still have that hunger. Personally, I’m doing very well, and Joaquin has also done great things this season. Let’s hope we can both have a good game. We’ve played against each other plenty over the years. He’s a great team-mate, although I’m focusing on Sevilla and hoping we can dedicate a win to our fans.”
