The Potters former midfielder was brilliant in Switzerland last night.
Sevilla defeated Liverpool 3-1 in the Europa League final last night, after running riot in the second-half in Basel.
The result, in the end, was deserved, and a former Stoke City player played a vital role.
Steven N'Zonzi was in fantastic form, especially in the second period, as the Spanish side defeated Liverpool in fine fashion.
Liverpool should have known all about the talents of N'Zonzi – who was instrumental in the 6-1 win over Liverpool for Stoke this time last year.
The Frenchman then headed to Sevilla after being rewarded with the Stoke City Player of the Year award for 2015-16.
Liverpool could not get past the rangy midfielder throughout the second-half and Stoke fans were undoubtedly pleased to see the 27-year-old pick up his first ever major honour.

When he left the club many a Stoke fan would have been disappointed with his departure but most were glad he was moving on in a deal that looked to develop his career, rather than just shifting sideways in the Premier League.
That was the overriding reaction from Stoke fans on Twitter after the game, who were pleased for the midfield general…
Nzonzi & Imbula in the middle of the park...dreamy! Yes, I know he's left, no I'm not over it because yes, he was/is that good. #SCFC— Georgina S Harris (@GSH1987) May 18, 2016
Nzonzi and bego left us for the same reason. One has just won a European trophy and the other finished below us in the table.— THE MIGHTY POTTERS (@STOKE_CITY_) May 18, 2016
Great to see Nzonzi achieving the success in Europe he wanted. Well done @SNZ_officiel! Proud of you— Jon Owen (@Jon19861) May 18, 2016
Every credit Nzonzi, left for the right reasons that have now been justified— Joe Hickson (@JoeHicky) May 18, 2016
@SNZ_officiel left Stoke to win trophies, done exactly that. Well done Nzonzi all the best— Karl Podmore (@poddy_8) May 19, 2016
Over the moon for Steven N'Zonzi too. He made the move to Sevilla for LESS money, in order to play European football. G'oarn son. #SCFC— Dan (@DanStrong_) May 18, 2016
