Argentine defender Germán Pezzella declared this Thursday, in his presentation as a Spanish Betis player, that he is “very happy to start” a second stage at the club that “allowed him to start his career in Europe” and stressed that he is returning “aware of what what it means to wear this shirt “.
Pezzella knows “the responsibility that comes with” playing for Betis, where he played between 2015 and 2017, so he feels “prepared for the beautiful year he awaits” within a “club has grown in an incredible way. Who lives the day does not see it clearly, but it is a different story “, said the Argentine in reference to his first stage.
Pezzella, in that sense, did not want to comment on the refusal of the Spanish clubs to yield to the South American players for the next round of matches in the preliminary phase of Qatar 2022, since it “exceeds the situation” but added that he expects “a definitive solution “because it supposes” a pride and a responsibility “to be” summoned with the selection “.
The international center-back, who returns to Betis after playing four seasons at Fiorentina, assured that he is “the same from that time but much more mature”, both because of “the experience of playing in Italy” and what “he has had to participate with. the selection “in milestones such as the recent conquest of the America’s Cup.
The president of Betis, Ángel Haro, said about the recent signing that “he is a player who needs no introduction” and wanted to thank him for “clearly betting on coming back to Betis”, since the parties involved admitted that the negotiation with Fiorentina “It was not easy.”
The Betic sports director, Antonio Cordón, also wanted to “thank Pezzella for the interest” he put in to return “from the first moment”, since “the conversations come from far away” and it was necessary to “wait for the right moment to formalize the signing “.
With the incorporation of Pezzella and Brazilian forward Willian José da Silva, Cordón considered “the squad practically closed unless there is an unexpected exit”, since he reiterated that, due to Betis’s economic situation, “no player will be non-transferable. “and has” the exit door open until the end of the market. “
