Real Betis unveil newly-signed Spain defender Bartra


IANS Seville (Spain)
Spanish top-division football club Real Betis on Wednesday presented its new central defender Marc Bartra, who transferred back to La Liga following a two-year stint at Borussia Dortmund.
The 27-year-old signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with the Andalusian Betis in a bid to plug the team's porous defensive line, which has conceded 50 goals so far this season, reports Efe.
"I feel more confident than ever because I've come to a league that tests you to the maximum," Bartra told reporters at a press conference alongside Angel Haro and Lorenzo Serra Ferrer, president and vice-president of the Seville-based club respectively.
Bartra was presented with the number 15 shirt.
Betis are currently in the 13th place in La Liga.
The club is set to take on fifth-placed Villarreal on Saturday.
