Setién: 'I am very happy with the players'

The Barça coach noted that 'the first training sessions back have been very stimulating, with great enthusiasm and desire from the players'

Quique Setién gave an interview to Bein Sports MENA, and said that "I am very happy with the disposition of the players, they've shown great enthusiasm and desire in training." Below, we take a look at some of the coach's statements:

Return to training

“These first training sessions have been very stimulating. We're very happy with the players, their enthusiasm and desire in their work, despite the fact that they haven't had physical content for these first two weeks back.”

"Now we've begun to use the ball more, and I'm happy with everyone's disposition."

Return of La Liga

“I understand that La Liga will end up resuming. It's on schedule, there are no cases and infections that may impede the development and I prefer to finish it."

First months

"It's been a very positive two months. Training Barça has been fulfilling a dream, an objective that one has in life when he decides to be a coach, and more in my case in that I have always been a follower of this team and its way of playing. Two exciting months, lived intensely. I am very happy to be here and with how things have gone.”


Suárez is very well, working with the group, he's doing practically everything with his team-mates. But he has been out for a long time after the operation, so has to go little by little.”

"Dembélé and Umtiti? They've had streaks of injuries, as happened to me when I was young. With the advances that there are today, they'll recover soon and contribute a lot to the team.”

The squad

“I need all the players, we don't know how the circumstances will develop when the competition starts again. I'm counting on everyone and I hope they can perform at their best.”

"They've all done well, with an exemplary attitude, and I will have a problem selecting the first XI for Mallorca."

The Champions League

“The reality is that we are all convinced that we want to win the Champions League. You always have to improve a lot, but the team has enough raw material to win it.”

“It is a competition that has a special meaning. I give more importance to the league because it has more merit to be competing every week, but the Champions League symbolically has a lot of prestige and everyone wants to win it. I would love to win it, it would be a dream. More than for me, for the joy we would give to many Barça fans, to this city, to this club. It would be very nice."
