Nabil Fekir: Joining Real Betis was incomprehensible

Nabil Fekir is delighted with his first months at Real Betis.

The 26-year-old joined Los Verdiblancos from Lyon, having previously been linked with a wide range of top European clubs.

"I can understand that my decision to come to Seville was difficult to understand when you come from a club like Lyon, who play in the Champions League every year," Fekir told Telefoot.

"It could be a bit incomprehensible."

However, he insisted that a move to Betis and LaLiga Santander was ideal for him.

"I like facing up to challenges, even if they seem a bit crazy," Fekir explained.

"LaLiga is perhaps more suited to me than Ligue 1, it's more technical and focused on attacking."
