Malaga winger Joaquin won't rule out a return to Real Betis.

The midfielder is a favourite son of Betis and has hopes of one day playing for the Seville club again.

"It's hard to think back, but in the future, of course I would love to," said Joaquin.

"I have always said I would love to retire there. But now it's hard because I'm part of a very nice new project, I have come to Malaga and I'm thrilled."
