Jesús Navas González is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a right winger or a right back for the Spain national team. He has spent the vast majority of his career with Sevilla, playing 572 official matches and winning seven major titles, including three Europa League titles and two Copas del Rey. In 2013 he signed for Manchester City, where he won the 2013–14 Premier League. He re-joined Sevilla in 2017, going on to hold the club’s record for most competitive appearances. A Spanish international since 2009, Navas helped his country win the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012, earning over 40 caps and scoring five goals. Born in Los Palacios y Villafranca, Province of Seville, Navas joined Sevilla’s youth system at age 15. In 2003–04, he made his first-team (and La Liga) debut when he played 12 minutes in a 0–1 loss at Espanyol on 23 November 2003. Navas suffered from chronic homesickness, to the extent he walked out of training camps in Spain because they were too far away from Seville. He also suffered from anxiety attacks and seizures, and initially refused to travel with Sevilla during pre-season to the United States due to his homesickness, later changing his mind in a bid to rid himself of this condition. Navas’ older brother, Marco, was also a footballer and a midfielder. Their family was of Gitano/Romani origin.
