It seems like now more than ever that the word “legend” gets tossed around the world of football. However, when it comes to this 39-year-old Spanish winger, the man from Real Betis is more than worthy of the title. 

Joaquin Sanchez Rodriguez spent the majority of his career with Betis, having made his first appearance all the way back in 2001 before moving on to another club in 2006.

Now at the ripe age of 33, you may think Joaquin is on some sort of a retirement-tour, one final goodbye to the city that first gave him a start. And yet, he remains as one of the most inspiring, talented, and influential players to have ever walked through the gates of Real Betis.
