Manuel Pellegrini wanted a ‘9’ and Betis opted for Willian Jose , a well-known striker in Spanish football, but who was not going through his best moment at Real Sociedad. The performance of the Hispanic-Brazilian is responding to that trust placed by the coaches and in just a month and a half of competition he has become the team’s offensive reference.
Willian Jose has been reactivated at Betis. In just five league games he has already equaled his records from last seasonwhen I played for Real Sociedad and Wolverhampton, a club to which he left on loan in January. Four goals accumulated by the striker, who, moreover, has achieved them in just six shots on goal, proof of that efficiency that has made him a safe bet.
His frustrated sale to Tottenham, who had wanted him the previous year, affected his performance, which was also displaced from the starting role at Real due to the emergence of Isak, a younger striker and also with a huge projection. Given this circumstance, the Hispanic-Brazilian did not doubt it when he heard about the proposal from Betis , a club that had already wanted him in the past.
In fact, the Verdiblanca entity was about to sign Willian Jose from the Union Deportiva Las Palmas, but various problems with his representative agency ended up frustrating the operation and the striker ended up at Real while Tony Sanabria was finally chosen for land at Heliopolis.
After five seasons in the San Sebastian team, Willian Jose arrived at Betis on loan, although the transfer for the next season was agreed between both clubs for about 8.5 million euros , an amount similar to what Betis would receive if Espanyol made the purchase option on Loren, the striker who left the record free for the registration of the Hispanic-Brazilian.
An injury suffered in his last training session with Real Sociedad delayed his set-up, but since his debut his performance has been on the rise. Four goals in just 265 minutes on the pitch in the League , an average scorer that places him on a par with the greatest, clearly indicate his perfect adaptation to the team.
Willian Jose ‘s confidence has even allowed him to discuss the League on social networks , after Soto Grado, the Betis-Espanyol referee, did not write down the goal against the parakeet team in the minutes, despite the fact that the shot by the striker was going to goal when he hit Pedrosa before entering the goal.
With open competition with Borja Iglesias, now duller than in his splendid streak last year, Willian Jose has quickly earned the trust of the Beticos, who see him as a winning bet.
