Leicester City striker Ayoze Perez admits Real Betis manager Manuel Pellegrini was a key reason for him moving to Spain.
Perez was struggling at Leicester under Brendan Rodgers, as he was not playing regularly.
He then moved to Betis on loan in the January transfer window, and will be out of contract in the summer.
Speaking to ABC Sevilla, he admitted: "It was a delicate moment in my career, I wasn't getting many minutes at Leicester.
"He (Manuel Pellegrini) gave me a lot of confidence. I had contact in which he told me that he wanted me in his team and that was very important for me.
"That's where my decision came from. We all know what a great coach he is and his great career, in that sense it made it easier for me to make my decision to come to Betis. It's important to have the confidence of a great coach like Manuel.
"The decision was based a lot on that confidence and that desire of the coach to have you in your team. He is the one who handles many important decisions, and to have that desire of the coach to have you in his team is very important and priceless.
"Very happy, of course I am. Very happy, very comfortable here, very well adapted and enjoying the club, the fans and Spanish football. I was really looking forward to returning to Spain. Psychologically it was very clear to me that it was the right time and hence my decision to return."
