The game left me very happy, also because of Nabil’s goal because he needed it. “
“It was a spectacular goal, he had the brilliance and strength to face three or four defenders, pass with the ball at the foot and define very well. The defense, which was so criticized at the time, we have 10 clean sheets. with collective work both in attack and defense “.
When you have lost, the next one wins
“Until November we were an irregular team, with important falls, but playing well, like against Madrid and Atlético de Madrid. The irregularity of a team when one tries to instill a new idea. From December we did start to get performance, happy of having a creative game, which is what the Betis fan wants, not looking for 0-0 against a team with a bigger budget or losing by the minimum. Hopefully now we have the ability to finish the last ten games at the same level. “
