Juanmi: “Qualifying for Champions League positions is what we want”


Juanmi is the top scorer of Real Betis last season, with 20 goals in all competitions (16 in the League, 2 in the Cup and 2 in the Europa League), a figure that no other Spanish player has reached, as Iago Aspas and Raúl de Tomás have 17 points in LaLiga , a figure Juanmi himself would have reached had he been awarded his first goal last season in Mallorca on the opening day, although Mateu Lahoz gifted it to Balearic goalkeeper Manolo Reina, in an own goal.

“There are 20 goals, but for me 21. With that goal I would choose Zarra but these are decisions made. important like winning the Cup and being fifth. We realize that we are still at the step that which the team and the club deserve because of how we do things and that is the dynamic to follow, working in this way so that the goals are bigger and bigger”, indicated the striker from Malaga, in an interview with ABC In the current preseason, Juanmi was also Betis’ top scorer, scoring two of the team’s four goals (the others were scored by Rodri and Loren).

After last season’s success, the rivals will take special precautions when facing Real Betis: “Like everything, in the end all teams are working to improve things. We, like the rivals, will try to improve what was our last year to choose for the third or fourth position, which we are closer, and the graduates below will try to find our weaknesses. Our responsibility is to correct the details and do that and hopefully we can achieve another great season. two years in a row entering UEFA, which is an important step, and we won the Cup. that last year we didn’t have to improve and choose the Champions positions League, that’s what we want, to be as high as possible,” said Juanmi frankly.

Fiorentina, last chance

Betis still haven’t won in the pre-season and this Saturday against Fiorentina they have their last chance: “We are in a period of adaptation. The result is important because when you win things look different but we still have a game like one against Villamarín with Fiorentina, which I think is a good test to focus on at the start of LaLiga. When we have to win, it’s Elche at the beginning of the season. People won’t ask us anymore, but we will ourselves Personal self-demand is what will lead us to achieve important victories again. We had a very good season last year and that is the way for it to continue to grow and for this season to match and improve on that, which if where we take all the games seriously but the one against Fiorentina, being the last one and against our people, the team knows it’s important to check us, to know what brushstroke we have to give for the start of the season. Hopefully we can get that win to give it to our people and start the season in the best possible way.”
