Description

Sergio Rico González (Spanish pronunciation: ; born 1 September 1993) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Sevilla FC as a goalkeeper.

He was formed at Sevilla, where he twice won the Europa League.

Rico made his senior international debut for Spain in 2016, and was chosen for the year's European Championship.

Rico was born in Seville, Andalusia. He played youth football with Sevilla FC, spending several of his first seasons as a senior with the reserves, in Segunda División B. On 1 July 2013, he signed a new two-year deal with the club.

On 14 September 2014, profitting from the injuries of both Beto and Mariano Barbosa, Rico made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, starting in a 2–0 home win against Getafe CF. Four days later he first appeared in the UEFA Europa League, playing the full 90 minutes in a home success over Feyenoord for the same scoreline.

In December, Rico was definitely promoted to the main squad, overtaking Barbosa in the pecking order. On the 16th he extended his contract with the Rojiblancos, signing until 2017 and being awarded a place with the first team in the following campaign. He finished the season with 37 appearances all competitions comprised, including 11 in the Europa League which concluded with a 3–2 win over FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the final.

In 2015–16, Rico played in Sevilla's UEFA Champions League group stage elimination, but was replaced by fellow youth graduate David Soria as the team went on to win a third consecutive Europa League title.
