Real Betis youngster Alejandro Pozuelo flattered by Man Utd, Barcelona interest

Real Betis youngster Alejandro Pozuelo refuses to be unsettled by interest from Barcelona and Manchester United.

Manchester United and Barcelona showing an interest has pleased the rising star, but Pozuelo wants to become a first-team regular having been promoted from the B team at Betis this season.

"Of course it is flattering, but I have always been a Betis supporter and I just want to stay here and become a great player for Betis," he said.

"I would prefer to become an idol here where I am from, in Seville with Betis because that is the team that I love.

"To do this I have spent a long time fighting my way up on dirt pitches in grounds with no lights. All I ever wanted was to play for Betis."
