The Barcelona technical director, who previously played for the Verdiblanco team, wishes the South American coach the best.
Before wasting time, Betis rushed to hire Manuel Pellegrini as a coach for three seasons, something that was well received by Quique Setién, Barcelona coach who went through the Benito Villamarín bench.
In the press conference prior to the match against Valladolid, the DT culé commented: “I suppose that the election of Pellegrini is a thoughtful decision and I hope that Betis will do very well.”
And he added: “It is already a subject that I am not going to comment on. I will always wish Betis to do well, it is a shame that this year he may not have been able to enter Europe
It should be noted that the Betic team has already secured its stay in the First Division of Spain against Osasuna and hopes with the Chilean to resume the level that, for example, he achieved with Setien at the helm.
