I come with great enthusiasm. We have worked hard this week. I have made an effort to wear this shirt. I have not come on vacation. I have I have come to fight and leave my skin. I want to do well and enjoy this year a lot,.

"When I had the opportunity I had to do everything possible. It was something that seemed complicated and in recent days it became a reality. For me, football is not all money. I want to play in a place where I have feelings. I come to the project with enthusiasm. For me the effort is nothing to write home about because the most important thing is to be in a place where I am happy."

Bellerin admits Betis is the team his father supports, adding: "The truth is that we have always talked about it. I have had it in my head. The circumstances have arisen. During the market there is a lot of talk and my father told me 'you have to go to Betis'."
