Del Nido: Negredo icing on Sevilla cake

MADRID - New signing Alvaro Negredo was the "icing on the cake" for Sevilla's squad and the club has every chance of success in the domestic league and cup and the Champions League, president Jose Maria del Nido said on Friday. "It cost us a huge effort to make him a Sevilla player and we finally managed it," Del Nido said at the Spanish striker's presentation after his move on Thursday from Real Madrid for a fee put at 15 million euros by local media. "We have one of the most competitive and complete squads in our history," he added. Negredo will compete for a place in the team with Mali's Frederic Kanoute and Brazil's Luis Fabiano.
