Somoza backs Betis bid for Riquelme

Leandro Somoza has backed Real Betis' interest in Villarreal midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme.

Betis coach Hector Cuper wants to sign Riquelme in January and fellow Argentine Somoza said: "Hopefully Riquelme will come here.

"Yes, he doesn't run as much as others, but he has the experience of playing for Argentina and Villarreal in big competitions."
