Antonio Adán insists that he is not thinking about Liverpool, who have been linked to the Betis goalkeeper. The Merseyside club sent scouts over to Seville to compile a report on the keeper in the Week 25 game against Sporting de Gijón; but Adán says he is quite happy where he is and feels he has an important role at the Villamarín where he is one of the team's four captains.
"Liverpool? I only renewed my contract a short while ago and here at Betis I feel happy and an important part of the side; so that's something I'm not thinking about right now", said Adán, who added that he is under contract until June 2019.
Nor is the 29-year-old contemplating a return to his former club, Real Madrid. "No, that's not an option for me. I prefer only to focus on the day to day and don't think too far ahead. I'm really happy in Seville, I feel at home. The people really have really taken to me and show me their affection. Right from the start I was made to feel important and with the chance of playing every Sunday. Here, I have everything I need to feel comfortable on every level", Adán explained.
"I don't consider myself to be indispensable, but I do feel as htough I'm an important member of the team - for the number of matches I played last season and the consistency I have shown. In the medium to long term, my plan is to continue growing as a player at Betis and continue showing consistency", he continued.
Apart from Liverpool, a number of English sides have shown an interest in his services, and more recently, Turkish Süper Lig champions Beşiktaş turned their attentions to the Betis keeper as a replacement for Denys Boyko, who struggled with ongoing injury problems. "I've always liked the Premier League and maybe in the future I will get a chance to experience it first hand but like I say, I'm only interested in the present - I don't like looking to the medium or long term", Adán ended.
