Prior to moving, Leeds United player Marc Roca called Real Betis every day.


Ramon Planes, the director of sports for Real Betis, claimed that Marc Roca called him every day this summer to arrange a transfer away from Leeds United.

The 26-year-old ultimately transferred to the La Liga team on loan as a result of a clause in his contract that could be activated following relegation.
Roca only moved to Elland Road last summer and struggled to make a mark for himself in the first team.
“He was desperate, he called every day. He left because of a good contract situation,” Planes told Betis TV, as transcribed by Marca. “He wanted to return and that’s how he told us. And I told him ‘Calm down, we’re going to do it.’

“Marc is a boy who’s going to give us a lot. When the possibility with Manuel was seen, he immediately told us yes, that he knew him, the season is very long. He’s going to give us many things.”
Daniel Farke mentioned since his initial days that he does not want anyone at Leeds who does not want to stay.

If Roca was making calls on the daily, it’s evident that relegation made the decision for him and he was happy to be out of Elland Road.

The Spaniard hasn’t really been an exceptional player for the Whites since his move last summer, as it is.
He often struggled to cope with the pace of the English game and Leeds might be better off without him.

They signed Ethan Ampadu, Glen Kamara and Ilia Gruev in midfield – three players who always wanted to join the club.

These are the kinds of players Farke wants and hopefully, the decision to pick them pays off.
