Pellegrini before Luis Rioja’s desire to play for Betis

For the Chilean coach who, by the way, has not yet manifested himself before this signing opportunity, it could be an interesting move, and a positive reinforcement for his offensive plot. Rioja plays in the left wing demarcation, but on occasions we have seen him occupy the right wing. Because he is a left-handed punch, the right-hand flank is precise for him to make diagonals towards the inside and to test from medium distance.

He is agile with the ball on his feet, thinks fast on pressure occasions, and associates very well with his teammates higher up. Although one of his weaknesses is his slow return when the team does not have the ball. However, they are details that the Chilean coach can adjust. The base price of the Sevillian is 3 million euros, but Betis could sign him in less than that.
