Real Betis veteran Joaquin: I want to be a bullfighter

Real Betis attacker Joaquin has plans for a new career once he hangs up the boots.

Joaquin has announced he wants to become a bullfighter.

He told AS: "It is quite difficult, but yes, I want to be a bullfighter as soon as I leave football. I would like to enter this world, always respecting a very delicate profession and giving my beneficial contribution to all the people of that world.

"I did everything I could to be one. I enrolled in the bullfighting school in El Puerto and the instant my mother saw that it was getting serious with my father she pushed me to choose football because she suffered a lot.

"Thanks to football I was able to learn more about the world of bullfighting."
