“His words annoyed me a lot, because they are not true. Dani is telling a story that is far from the reality, and yes Betis may have erred by not signing a deal many months earlier but the player stalled for months. From my point of view it was clear that he was thinking only of himself and not about Betis, and ultimately it led to an exit that was not pleasant for anyone.” - Real Betis vice- president Jose Miguel Lopez Catalan responded to Dani Ceballos’ claims that his exit from the club was Betis’ fault, who stalled on a new deal and told lies about him to their fans.
“It’s true that we’d have loved to go through, but at least we’re staying in the highest tier. I also think there’s a team under construction with many young players. We’ll go step by step and put our faith in this group of players, who are sensational. There’s the obvious inclusion of a new generation. The Coach has all our confidence to bring through these young players.” - The Royal Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales expressed his disappointment in Spain not qualifying out of their UEFA Nations League group, but is nonetheless happy with the work Luis Enrique is doing.
“But I can say that this is the best group that I have played with. Here we are a team. In other places some feel bigger than the rest, but here they are all on the same level, they are humble and they want to win.” - Cristiano Ronaldo heaps praise on his new teammates at Juventus while taking a sly dig at his ex-team Real Madrid.
