Aleñá: “Valverde already knew that I wanted to go”

first_imgLaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 8, 2020 Carles Aleñá was officially presented by Betis. The player assigned by Barcelona posed with his new shirt, which will feature the number 24, and after the classic act of videos and speeches dedicated to the player, including one by Marc Bartra, was submitted to the press questions. “This club has to go up by team, hobby … I have a crazy desire to play at Villamarín and I hope they are six months of glory“began Aleñá.Aleñá was questioned about the surprise that Valverde produced when he left Barça: “What I know is that I told Valverde that I wanted to come to Betis. There was a clause that let me decide my future, in summer there was already Betis interest and Valverde knew that I wanted to go. It was all very simple. “ During the speeches, Aleñá was about to get excited several times and justified it as a dream to be in Betis: “I talked a lot with Bartra and Álex Moreno and since you enter here you see what this is. Betis hooks you and I’m excited to be able to live this while being so young. For me it is a dream and I hope to get great things and for Betis to go up“.Aleñá also analyzed the format of his assignment, of six months with no purchase option, something that does not take away his sleep at the moment: “It has been six months because it has had to be this way and in the future you will see what happens. I knew that for my game it was best to come to Betis. It was the best place to come, with the mister I have only talked about game matters, I do not come with the label of having to be a holder to come from Barcelona. I come to a team with a lot of competition to play the maximum possible minutes. “And finally, Aleñá was totally convinced that Betis will star in a comeback in the second round that will allow him to reach European positions: “I see that it is entirely feasible for the team to climb, if I didn’t believe it, I wouldn’t have come here. We are convinced that the team has to go up, it is bad luck that Betis is in the position that is. We are convinced that the second round will be very good and before the Real Sociedad it will begin to see a new Betis to reach Europe. “last_img read more

The demonstration will continue to the Legislative Assembly.Some of the slogans ANEP leaders plan to use include: “I’m not responsible for the fiscal deficit”; “I don’t dodge taxes”; and “I’m not lazy or corrupt.”A pamphlet circulating in government offices argues that wage bonuses are lawful and cannot be eliminated. “We live in a state of law, and these benefits are protected by vested rights,” the pamphlet states.The document claims that the business sector “concentrates wealth, dodges taxes and is pushing to maintain an unfair Costa Rican tax structure.”Lawmakers from several political parties have voiced the need to cut a proposed 2015 budget of ₡7.9 trillion ($14.5 billion), submitted by President Luis Guillermo Solís on Sept. 1.That proposal would allot more than ₡1 billion ($1.8 million) for salary bonuses and overtime for public workers.Solís has said he is open to making some cuts that wouldn’t affect essential and “strategic” plans for his administration.The Assembly’s Financial Affairs Commission currently is discussing the draft budget and will issue an overview by Oct. 20. The budget then must be approved by the full Assembly in two separate rounds of voting.Last year, lawmakers approved the 2014 budget at a total of ₡6.6 trillion ($13.1 billion).
