Rayo tried to strike a deal with Real Betis to sign him, but, when fans insisted he went “against the values of the club”, the Madrid-based team appeared to pull out of discussions.However, in the final moments, it was resurrected, and the deal went through. And Zozulya penned a letter to the fans in which he claims his alleged ties to the Ukrainian far-right is all down to a misunderstanding.In it, he claims the whole story started with a picture taken of him when he arrived at Betis from Dnipro in the summer.He writes that a journalist in question, who knew “very little about the realities of my country and my beliefs”, took a picture of him arriving at the Seville airport, wearing a coat with the shield of his country.
