Club icons deserve a little more. This is also the case at Real Betis, where Joaquín, 39, extended his contract for a year until 2022. In a video clip, 85-year-old theater actress Maria Galliana announced the extension of the contract: “Time seems to have no effect on him.”
The 39-year-old Joaquin adds an extra. Especially for club icon Joaquin, 85-year-old Sevillian theater actress María Galiana got into her pen to poetically announce a contract extension.
“Whoever talks about luck also talks about Betis. My Betis. Joaquin Betis. What a player! Time doesn’t seem to control him. Over and over in that ward. And the score! I have a lot to have fun with.”
“When I was young, it was the elders who decided everything in the world. It seems like that has changed a little these days. But I keep doing things with determination. And you, Joaquin?”
Joaquin is a true icon of Betis. He continued the youth streak there before making his first-team debut in 2000. His contract extension marked the thirteenth season of the former Spanish international in Betis’s first team. In 2005, Joaquin won his only prize with Betis, the Copa del Rey.
