In an interview with AS on Thursday, the French playmaker of Betis Sevilla, Nabil Fekir, expressed his desire to replay the European Cup next season. And is rather unclear about its future.
What if Nabil Fekir’s adventure at Betis Sevilla came to an end? Arrived in the Andalusian club in 2019 from Olympique Lyonnais, his training club, the playmaker will end his contract in 2023. At 27, the French international (25 caps) nevertheless seems undecided on his future. Author of four goals this season (7 in 2019-2020), he has a more successful season than the first and says he is happy in Seville. “For the moment, I’m happy at Betis, we will do everything to qualify for the European Cup, that’s what I’m thinking about now,” said the former Lyonnais Thursday in an interview with the daily AS.

Asked about his future, the world champion, on the other hand, was more evasive: “In football, we cannot know the future, we look season after season.” For Nabil Fekir, the rest of his career could be conditioned by a qualification for the European Cup next season. “It’s always important to play in the European Cup, recalls the 27-year-old. I played in the Champions League and the Europa League, I want to play in the European Cup again.” Betis are currently 5th in Liga and therefore provisionally qualified for the Europa League. In addition, according to the Spanish media, Barça would have an eye on the French, who would not be insensitive. The soap opera is perhaps only just beginning.
