Sevilla got fed up and sent central defender Joris Gangnon

Three years ago, in the summer of 2018, Joris Gnagnon left Rennes to join Sevilla, in a deal that cost Sevilla coffers nearly 13.5 million euros.

The contention is the various episodes of excess weight, which are never compensated, not even after specific action based on diet or treatments. Faced with constant repetition, Seville ended up placing the process in the hands of the legal department, advancing to dismissal due to lack of discipline.
