Omitted by Sevilla, history is repeating itself for Everton flop Sandro Ramirez

Sandro Ramirez quickly fell out of favour at Premier League outfit Everton and is yet to make an impression since returning to La Liga with Sevilla.

Is history repeating itself for Sandro Ramirez?

The Spanish U21 striker moved to Everton in the summer for £5.1 million from Malaga amid plenty of excitement, as reported by the Independent. Sandro had scored 14 goals in just 28 games in La Liga last season and was expected to be one of the signings of the summer in the English top flight.

It is fair to say things did not exactly pan out that way.

Sandro started the season in Everton’s first-team plans but quickly fell out of favour. Between mid-September and the turn of the year, he played just 68 minutes of Premier League football without scoring a single goal and few were surprised when he returned to Spain last month.

What now?

But Sandro’s loan spell at Sevilla appears to be heading the same way. The one-time Barcelona prospect was subbed off on the hour of a dreadful debut at Eibar, with Vincenzo Montella’s men falling to a 5-1 defeat, and only came off the bench in the second half of a win away at Las Palmas.

His minutes were reduced again in the Champions League clash with Manchester United in midweek, introduced with just five remaining as Sevilla chased a goal, and he was nowhere to be seen at all as the Andalusians welcomed Atletico Madrid, the club Sandro could have signed for in the summer if it was not for a transfer ban, to the Sanchez Pizjuan.

According to El Desmarque, Sandro did not appear to be injured and it seemed that Montella simply dropped him from the 18-man squad before Sevilla’s humiliating 5-2 home defeat.

This nightmare season is showing no signs of stopping.
