Real Betis have announced the signing of Japan international Takashi Inui on a free transfer from La Liga rivals Eibar. But they’ve got very creative to do it.
Betis drew on the inspiration from Manga and Anime to reveal the arrival of Takashi on Twitter. Several characters from Manga, including the dragon from Dragon ball, are seen in the video before Super Mario Brothers show up at Takashi’s home to hand him a Doraemon soft toy, which has a Betis jersey inside that the player pulls out to reveal his new team.
Takashi is then seen holding the Betis shirt before saying “Mucho Betis!“, the chant used by club fans.

Betis have not lacked creativity and humour this season when sending messages on social media. They recently posted a photograph on twitter with a sign that read: “Closed due to European qualification” the day after securing a place in next season’s Europa League.
