Wissam Ben Yedder came to Sevilla in July 2016 making his debut shortly after his signing against Barcelona. He came relatively unknown to most here at Monchi’s Men and there was some nervousness about the signing. He quickly showed that he was worth ever bit the transfer fee by started his scoring tally on August 20th, 2016 in his first start against Espanyol at home.
During his Sevilla career he was a scoring machine and was known for his constant work rate. In the 2016 Copa del Rey, he tied Messi for the tournaments scoring title. He helped lead that 3 goal comeback against Liverpool being subbed on at halftime. His most notable game was probably the Man U game at Old Trafford where he scored 2 goals in 4 minutes after being subbed on to push Sevilla to a historic victory.
He finished his Sevilla career with 70 goals and 22 assists in 138 total games across all competitions. His 70 goals put him 5th all time on the Sevilla scoring list. Not bad for a 9 million Euro signing.
We here at Monchi’s Men wish Ben-Yedder nothing but the best at Monaco and with the French national team. Thanks for the memories!
