Pellegrini, technician of the Real
Betis, has asked the club in the first meeting held to plan the 2021-22 season, to try to retain all the most valuable players on the squad, unless an out-of-market offer arrives for one of them. The Chilean coach wants to continue to have players of the stature of Nabil Fekir, Sergio Canales, Guido Rodríguez, Borja Iglesias or the same William
Carvalho, despite the fact that it had recently lost ownership.
Pellegrini is aware that making up for the absence of any of these referential players from the Betic squad would be very complicated due to the economic situation of the club, which he has urged to do everything possible to maintain them and reinforce other positions that have been weakened, as is the position of right-back after the foreseeable departure of Emerson to FC Barcelona and that of right-hander after not renewing his contract, Mandi, who goes to Villarreal.
The Chilean coach, according to ABC, has clearly bet before the club’s sports commission for the continuity of Nabil Fekir, who Didier Deschamps has finally left out of the French list for this summer’s European Championship. He has also shown himself in public in favor of the continuity of William Carvalho, since he is not far from left with midfielders and he knows that with three competitions there will be opportunities for everyone. “William will be a very important player for next season,” Pellegrini said on Tuesday when asked specifically about the continuity of the Portuguese.
In this sense, the president of Real Betis, Ángel Haro, indicated this Tuesday night, during the act of tribute to Joaquín -with whose name the door number 2 of access to Benito Villamarín was baptized-, that “we have to give a I step more every year and get consolidated in Europe. We have been working on signings for a long time and we will have a competitive squad, for sure ”.
