"I did not want to leave because I want to succeed in Spain and at Betis," Babic told Vecernji List.

"Despite not being offered the chance to play enough minutes and that I could miss Euro 2008, I don't want to waste this opportunity.

"I refused to listen to Bolton's offer despite it being an honour that a Premier League team are interested in you, as their competition is very interesting.

"I am very happy in Seville and I work every day to obtain the manager's trust."
