Jesus Navas dedicated Sevilla's Europa League triumph on Friday night to the late Jose Antonio Reyes and Antonio Puerta.

The 34-year-old helped his side beat Inter Milan 3-2 to earn the Spanish side's sixth Europa League title in Cologne.

Navas revealed that the victory was for those associated with Sevilla who passed away over the years, including former stars Reyes and Puerta.
The Sevilla captain told Movistar after the final: 'It is the most special day for being able to raise the cup as captain, with my Sevilla.


'This is for all the people who are not with us anymore, for Puerta, Reyes ... my godfather who has passed away. We are all captains here.'

Former Sevilla man Puerta passed away in August 2007 after suffering several separate cardiac arrests during the La Liga side's opening match of the season against Getafe
Navas, who was a key member of the Sevilla squad at the time, carried Puerta's coffin at his funeral while he now wears his former team-mate's number 16 shirt in his honour. 


Reyes, who was the last Sevilla captain to lift the Europa League before Navas on Friday night, passed away in a road accident last year along with his cousin. 


The former Arsenal and Real Madrid winger made over 250 appearances for the Spanish side over two different spells 

Navas continued: 'This group deserve it, we have been fighting all the year. They worked day by day with the problems that there have been. And to all the fans who deserve it.

'The fans can feel proud with us, today and tomorrow they will enjoy. And Sevilla is getting greater every day.'
