X factor. Nabil Fekir (28) has been Betis’ key player since the start of the season. By dint of goals, assists and accomplishments, the 2018 world champion finds his best level in Andalusia, to the delight of Manuel Pellegrini, his trainer. Asked by Betis TV, the left-hander confirmed his development in his Sevillian environment.
“I think this is my best version. I always try to help the team, to score, to give goals … but at the moment everything is going very well for me. (…) I am very well here, I am very happy and I am happy here. I learn every day and I hope to be able to continue like this ”, he stressed at the microphone of the program Todo al Verde before insisting. “I see that the public loves me, it makes me very happy and I want to give it back to the field. I am very happy here ”.
Extension in sight?
A happiness which radiates and which pushes him to put aside all the offers which one speaks these last days (it would thus be part of the first short-lists of reinforcements studied on the side of Newcastle). “You never know in football, but the truth is that today, I do not think of the other offers. I am at Betis and I am very happy here ».
Under contract until June 2023, the former Lyonnais even confirms that he has started talking about an extension with the Spanish team, where he arrived in the summer of 2019. “It is normal that we start talking about an extension because I only have a year and a half left on my contract. We will discuss and we will see “, he concluded. Something to reassure the boiling public of Benito Villamarin.
