Sevilla players draw blank when asked what they got up to yesterday
Stars including Carlos Bacca, Grzegorz Krychowiak and José Antonio Reyes found themselves unable to explain to their friends and family why they spent yesterday in the Polish capital Warsaw.
Ex-Arsenal ace Reyes said: "My legs feel a bit sore today. Did we play a match? But Warsaw aren't a La Liga team. And we're not in the Champions League. It doesn't make any sense."
Reyes added that as far as he could recall, yesterday had been a thoroughly uneventful day, and that he had gone to bed early after watching an old episode of BBC courtroom drama Silk, starring Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry-Jones.

Colombia star Bacca said: "I was wondering why I had my passport with me, and then I remembered I'd taken a selfie in front of the Pałac Kultury with all the other lads. But why were we there? I'm sure it will all come back to me in time."
The 28-year-old continued that he vaguely felt like a weight had been lifted from his shoulders, but he could not specify what it was or why. Bacca also reported frustration at being unable to pay for his shopping with a large, bronze coin with a ribbon on it that he found in his pocket, and which he could only assume was some kind of high-denomination Polish złoty.
