It’s a short turnaround for Real Betis this week after Sunday’s winning trip to Valencia, they host Granada at el Benito Villamarín this Friday.
We know things at Betis can be a little disjointed and unsteady at times but Granada can certainly give us a run for our money. They have seen well over 30 faces come and go this summer alone, including the appointment of new manager Paco Jémez.
Paco is a popular figure in La Liga who took the reigns at everyone’s favourite hipster club, Rayo Vallecano, for four years until his sacking at the end of last season when the Madrid-based club succumbed to the drop.
Ahead of Friday’s all-Andalucian encounter, BlogBetis spoke to Heath Chesters, the English Communications Manager at Granada FC who has the envious task of living in one of the most beautiful cities in Spain.
Heath had plenty to say on Granada’s start to the season, the comings and goings, what’s in store for the future and, more urgently, what is in store for this Friday’s game.
