The man from Utrera, who presented his Summer Campus this Friday in Utrera, will be in the Cup final cheering on a club where he has been “very happy”
He has spent months, years in fact, winking at Real Betis, the club for which his heart beats, even though, as a professional, he has also defended other colors, even those of the eternal rival, in addition to Real Madrid and Arsenal. Dani Ceballos hopes, sooner rather than later, to dress in verdiblanco again, since he is aware that he did not leave as he would have wanted almost five years ago, partly on the ill-advised part of his previous agency. Received by the majority with whistles and some ugly word in his visits to Benito Villamarín, with a goal included to give the meringues the victory on one occasion, he is willing to change the opinion of the sector of the Heliopolitan fans who do not forgive him, much older than the one who considers that he has no place under the orders of Manuel Pellegrini.
Because, apart from that negotiation to change the scene, few can dispute the quality of a midfielder who has established himself in the elite, confirming how high he aimed at La Palmera. An absolute international, coveted by important clubs and with a cache at his level, Dani has actively and passively shown his affection for Betis, who came close to reappointing him on a couple of occasions. The last one, last summer, when an untimely ankle injury during the Tokyo Olympics delayed his activity until Christmas. In addition, the absence of exits that would free up chips and wage bills, apart from the urgency of hiring his friend Bellerín to cover Sabaly’s serious injury, postponed an agreement that Seville’s top executives are already verbalizing.
Meanwhile, endless messages via social networks later, Ceballos took advantage of the presentation this Friday in Utrera of his Summer Technification Campus to remember where the shots of his wishes go. With a contract until 2023, he can say it louder, because more clearly it is difficult. “It’s a love story for me with Betis; I’ve always said that I owe him everything, that I’m eternally grateful for everything he did for me when it came to making me feel like a footballer. And, since I left, I’ve missed. Betis is a team where I’ve been very happy”, said the midfielder, in statements collected by the newspaper ‘As’.
In fact, he will be at the La Cartuja Stadium next April 23 encouraging his other team to beat Valencia and add a title to their showcases 17 years later: “I’m not healthy envy to see him in the Cup final del Rey, the other way around; I hope they win it. I’m going to be present, because I’ve moved heaven and earth to be there with my family. Hopefully we can see Betis lift another Cup after many years. Put on the shirt? I have to respect Real Madrid, which is my club; I’ll be just another fan”,
In this sense, he gave his place to the whites, to see if Ancelotti gives him more minutes in the final stretch of the season: “Now, I am very focused on these two months, which are very important for the end of the season. The coach has confidence in me. This is the moment when he can bet on me, especially in this final stretch, which is where we are going to play things for real. There are still games left, and I hope to have minutes. It is true that We’re doing quite well in the league, now in the Champions League we have a difficult rival like Chelsea, who did us a lot of damage last year, but we’re up against another team, and they’re up against a more prepared Real Madrid”.
