In the next few hours, coach Manuel Pellegrini will announce the call for the last ‘stage’ of the Real Betis Balompié preseason, but news has already been released that has surprised many Verdiblancos fans. Defender Martín Montoya will not be part of the travel list, indicating that his time with the team has come to an end.
according to account abc, Montoya, a right-back with extensive experience, has seen how his place in the Betic dressing room has vanished with the return of Héctor Bellerín, a recent acquisition of the club. This situation has led the board to begin negotiations to agree on the player’s departure.
During the preseason, Martín Montoya has had the opportunity to participate in three of the four friendly matches played by Real Betis. However, it seems that he has not been enough to secure a place in the team for next season.
The winger is currently analyzing the different proposals he has received to continue his professional career with another team. It is almost certain that he will say goodbye to Benito Villamarín, and everything indicates that the club will choose to terminate his contract, which expires in June 2024, thus allowing him to become a free agent and seek accommodation in another market.
Thank you very much for your professionalism
Martín Montoya has made his mark at Real Betis Balompié, contributing his experience and skills on the pitch. The fans will surely remember his effort and dedication during his time at the club despite the fact that this second stage has not been as good as the first years ago.
