La Liga: Trezeguet scores brace as Hercules stun Sevilla
Many cynics thought David Trezeguet was taking an easy option by moving to Hercules this summer.
His wife is from Alicante and there was a suggestion that the former France international was keen on one last payday on the Costa Blanca before finally hanging up his boots.
Trezeguet, however, has not come to sun himself on the beach and he has already reached more than a quarter of the tally of goals he scored in his last two seasons for Juventus combined.
He will always be remembered by Antonio ÃƒÂlvarez as the player who precipitated the end of his managerial tenure at Sevilla.
A brace from Hercules’ most famous name was enough to send Sevilla crashing to a 2-0 defeat at the Jose Rico Perez on Sunday and ÃƒÂlvarez was sacked by Sevilla president Jose MarÃƒÂa Del Nido in the immediate aftermath of that embarrassing loss.
Trezeguet’s cultured finishing could be the difference between a relegation struggle and a comfortable mid-table finish for Esteban Vigo’s side this season.
