Llorente thanks Juventus fans ahead of Sevilla switch

The striker admits he was made to feel at home by the club’s supporters despite struggling to find his form in Turin

Fernando Llorente has sent a message of thanks to Juventus fans as he prepares to complete a move to Sevilla.

The striker is on the verge of sealing a return to La Liga after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Italian champions for the 2015-16 season.

Despite failing to replicate the impressive form he showed in his prime for Athletic Bilbao during his two-year spell in Turin, Llorente has paid tribute to the supporters for making him feel welcome.

Llorente, 30, scored 27 goals in 92 appearances for Juventus and won five trophies during his time with the Old Lady, including two Serie A titles.
