Kanoute produced a starring performance in the 4-2 victory at the Ramon Sanchez Pijuan to help Sevilla end a run of four successive defeats in all competitions. Although there were only two goals in it at the end, Sevilla looked superb going forward against Slavia and created enough chances to have at least doubled their goal tally.
"We very much needed the three points," said man of the match Kanoute. "At the start we were a little nervous because we have not been winning in the last two weeks, but in this match we have stopped that bad run of form. With this victory we have gained confidence."
