Ganso: I’m ready to adapt

Paulo Henrique Ganso insists he is ready for Europe and that he will adapt to the role that new Sevilla manager Jorge Sampaoli needs him to play.

The attacking midfielder joins the five-time Europa League champions from Sao Paulo for a fee of €10 million and was presented to the press on Friday.

"At 26 I was ready to make the jump to Europe," Ganso said at the press conference. "I think I'll adapt as well as possible but you can always do better.

"I'll adapt to what Sampaoli needs, deeper or further forward, but I will do what he decides. I'm a player with a lot of will and attitude."

The Brazilian playmaker spoke of his reasons for choosing the Primera Division and Los Rojiblancos, citing two particularly influential voices.

"Neymar has spoken of La Liga and Luis Fabiano said a lot of good things about this club," he said.

"There are great players with very good qualities here and we will adapt well to make Sevilla better. Sampaoli is doing great work.

"I'm fully recovered and ready to train and play. I said goodbye to Sao Paulo with a lot of happiness, emotional and grateful to everyone."
