No one played more than Sergio Canales at Rubi’s Betis. His 2,384 minutes in this campaign are no coincidence despite the fact that the collective performance of the Verdiblanco team held back one of the Cantabrian’s strongest wishes: regularly go to the calls of the Spanish team and dream of being present at the next Euro Cup. After delaying the tournament for a year, the incentive now takes a new dimension for the midfielder, who has another campaign ahead to try to win a ticket to the continental competition from Luis Enrique. Canales has a leading role in Betis de Rubi and its position on the lawn adapts to the collective needs of the group. That and his brilliant performance in most of the course makes him one of the players enrolled in the extensive list of options that the Spanish coach handles for the future. After his leadership at Betis last year under the leadership of Quique Setién, The Santanderian could already be present in the national team before disappearing from those calls in the last appointments. His dream is now renewed: he wants to maintain his regularity in Heliópolis and that the team take a qualitative leap that can also boost his candidacy. Canales does not look beyond the verdiblanco team at present, despite the fact that many clubs are closely following its progression. It was renewed just a few months ago and, at 29 years old, the club knows that it is one of the proper names that will be on the table in the market, although neither party pretends that it is. Betis insisted in recent days on the desire that none of the main figures of the team leave the ship this summer despite the fact that the objective of going to Europe is not achieved, Although the case of Pau López last summer was also given as an example of the difficulty of tying all the desired ones on the campus.
