Pellegrini and the signings: ‘Maybe I expected a little more’

Manuel Pellegrini does not expect big movements in the last hours of the transfer market, in any case a left-handed side that allows all positions to be doubled. “In recent days there are always movements but it is difficult to know which ones will occur in an atypical market, there will be movements but I do not think they are very big surprises”, the Real Betis coach acknowledged this Friday at a press conference.

Apart from reinforcing the left-handed side, which remains to be achieved, Pellegrini would have liked to have more alternatives: “Everything is related to the economic aspect, I would like to have more alternatives in different positions but there is a reality that must be accepted, and with the squad we have we must make the best possible campaign and hopefully we can aspire to something important.”

On whether the transfer market has gone as he expected, Pellegrini has commented the following: “Knowing what was happening in the world of football it was possible that there were economic problems … Maybe I expected a little more, last year almost a hundred million were invested and footballers were transferred even more, but this year neither brought nor sold to anyone. Like all teams, Betis has also been affected ”.
