Long-term injuries[edit]

Congenital abnormality in Maduro's heart[edit]

Out between: July 2012 – September 2012

On 28 July, Sevilla announced that Hedwiges Maduro was suffering from a congenital anomaly in his heart. It was detected in a special examination by physicians during the second part of the team's summer concentration in Costa Ballena, near Rota. The club said days after that the player had traveled to Houston, Texas, for an examination and a full diagnosis. Maduro said after the first extensive revisions made in Spain that his life was not in danger. After being investigated in Houston by Dr. Paolo Angelini, Sevilla medical services made public that Maduro's abnormality would not prevent him from playing football professionally, and he could rejoin the squad as normal, in late August.

Trochowski's knee injury[edit]

Out between: September 2012 – May 2013

After scoring the first goal of the match against Barcelona on 29 September, Piotr Trochowski had to leave the match with a knee injury. Sevilla's medical services analyzed his illness during the following days. The treatment he received first failed, and doctors thought it was appropriate to operate him in late October in Denver, Colorado. After the surgery, the club told press that the time without playing would be eight months, figuring that his reappearance could be in May 2013, meaning he would miss the remainder of the season.

5th Champions for Africa[edit]

For the fifth consecutive time, Frédéric Kanouté and his foundation, along with support from UNICEF and other agencies and corporations, have organized this solidary friendly match in order to help children in Africa in areas such as health and education, especially in the recently opened Sakina, Ville des Enfants in Bamako (Mali). The game was played again in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium in Seville because the match was also the official farewell and tribute for the Malian, who signed a new contract with Beijing Guoan in China after seven seasons playing for Sevilla. There were two teams composed by players from Liga BBVA, Liga Adelante, and Segunda División B. One of them, called "Sevilla FK", was composed entirely by Sevilla FC former and current players, and was led by Míchel, and the other one, called "Selección Champions" (in English, Champions Team), was led by Manolo Jiménez, Real Zaragoza coach and former Sevilla coach and player.
