Ez Abde decided to leave Barcelona last summer in search of greener pastures. Though he has been keeping a close eye on his previous employers from a distance, he joined Real Betis.

More Details

He has witnessed their difficulties, which were made worse on Saturday when they lost to Girona 4–2, dropping them to third place in the La Liga rankings behind their Catalan rivals. It’s been a difficult season for Xavi Hernandez’s team, as they were heartbreakingly eliminated from both the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

Strong criticism of Xavi and his Barcelona teammates has resulted from this, but Abde told Diario AS he thought it was unjustified.

“I fail to see the point of the criticism. They have, in my opinion, had a fantastic year. They were competitive in La Liga, and they made it to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, something they haven’t done in a long time. They’ve been unlucky, in my opinion. The upcoming season will undoubtedly go farther”.

Abde has been linked to a potential summer transfer from Betis in recent weeks, with Saudi Arabian teams and AC Milan expressing interest in signing him. In the unfortunate scenario of a transfer, Barcelona’s 50% sell-on would come into play, although he is eager to stay in Manuel Pellegrini’s team.

“I want to succeed at Betis, and I will and may the upcoming year prove to be my greatest time in life”.


For some months, Real Madrid attacker Joselu Mato has been embroiled in a legal struggle over a contract disagreement with his old team, Alaves. However, the legal proceedings have not painted him in a favorable light.

After his contract with Alaves expired in 2022, Joselu joined Espanyol on a free transfer. He spent a season with Los Pericos before joining Real Madrid on loan last summer. Real Madrid has the option to purchase him for €1.5 million this summer.

Nonetheless, the 33-year-old sued Alaves in court, arguing he was entitled to €300,000 as part of a redundancy payout. Even though the outcome of that case is still unknown (it hasn’t been confirmed yet), El Correo claims to have seen part of the judge’s sentencing. It is confirmed in that sentence that Joselu threatened to lessen his effort on the field for Alaves.
