Madrid, Sep 4 (IANS) Getafe’s Uruguayan midfielder Sebastian Cristoforo said on Tuesday that he is happy to return on loan to the Spanish football league, where he previously played at Sevilla.
The 25-year-old midfielder was the last deal for Getafe in this summer’s transfer window, reports Efe.
“I always like the Spanish league, since it is a very competitive tournament,” Cristoforo said at his Getafe presentation.
Cristoforo started his career at Peñarol in Uruguay from 2011 until 2013, then moved to Sevilla for three seasons and then joined the Italian side Fiorentina in 2016 on loan and then as a transfer in 2017.
