Romaric makes Zaragoza move

The 29-year-old midfielder becomes the third Ivorian to head

through the exits at Sevilla this summer, following the departures

of Didier Zokora and Arouna Kone. The Primera Liga outfit are in

the middle of a rebuilding programme and have agreed a settlement

with Romaric which releases him from their books. “Christian Koffi

Ndri Romaric is totally disconnected from Sevilla FC following an

agreement between the player and the club,” read a brief statement

released on the club’s official website. “Now the Ivorian

midfielder will play for Real Zaragoza, under the command of coach

Manolo Jimenez, who had the player in his ranks during his time in

charge of Sevilla.” Romaric has spent the last four years in Spain,

having joined Sevilla from Le Mans in 2008, and he is looking

forward to opening a new chapter in his career. “I am delighted to

come to Zaragoza,” he said. “For the next two years I will play my

football here and hope to enjoy it. “I need a big season with

Zaragoza and I am looking forward to that. “I had many offers but

Zaragoza gave me the most assurance and their project has convinced

me to join them.”
