Jordi Amat speaks to La Liga Lowdown about life at Real Betis this season

Following part one of La Liga Lowdown’s interview Jordi Amat, the second half focuses on the centre-back’s season back in Spain.

Having previously played for Espanyol and Rayo Vallecano, the 26-year-old moved to Premier League side Swansea City in 2013.

However, fleeting appearances and difficulty getting a regular starting place has led to a loan spell at Real Betis this season.

Amat has featured 23 times in La Liga this term, which has seen the Benito Villamarín outfit secure a place in the Europa League next year.

Yet, his focus will be on this weekend when Real Betis host their local rivals Sevilla, the defender’s first Seville derby.

While not as big as the El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona, the match between the two Andalusians sides still has a tendency to be explosive with both clubs looking to get bragging rights in the city.

In the above interview with La Liga Lowdown’s David Garrido, Amat talks about his time back in his homeland, where he has been playing alongside the likes of Spanish veteran Joaquín and youth product Fabián Ruiz, who scored the goal that secured European football next season.
