Fabian ‘only thinking of Betis’

Real Betis midfielder Fabian Ruiz insists the only thing on his mind is this weekend’s final game of the season and not his future.

The 22-year-old Spain Under-21 international has become one of the strongholds in the Betis midfield this term, prompting interest from a number of top clubs hoping to secure his signature, including Serie A giants Lazio.

However, Fabian refused to elaborate and was adamant his only concern right now is to finish the current campaign on a high.

“The only thing I’m thinking about is Betis and at this moment it hasn’t entered my head to leave the place where I grew up,” said Fabian at a club promotional event.

“We have a match at Leganes on Saturday where we can finish fifth in the table and that’s the only thing that matters right now.

“I cannot talk about the future. I am focused on Betis, on Saturday, and then going on holiday – nothing else.

“We’ve shown this year that with hard work anything is possible and that for youngsters like myself it is possible to play a lot of minutes and do well.”
