Juan Carlos: Played down talk linking him with Everton

The 23-year-old winger has been linked with a move to Goodison Park from his parent club Sporting Braga in Portugal after impressing with los Verdiblancos this term.

"I have no idea about the Everton thing. I did read the other day about interest from some other teams, but I do not know," the Spaniard, whose full name is Juan Carlos Perez Lopez, told reporters.

"Nobody has said anything to me. Now I am just focused on Betis and I would like to stay.

"On the subject of my future, that is something I keep away from. I prefer to focus myself on playing.

"When the season is over, then we can look at all this."

Juan Carlos rose through the ranks at Real Madrid, but after just one first-team appearance was sold to Braga in 2011 and then immediately loaned to Real Zaragoza.

This season he has impressed during a second loan spell, this time at Betis, and the Spanish side are keen to keep him but have been told he is wanted back in Portugal for next term.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
