Even in his dream, Quique Setien did not think of becoming the manager of the Catalan club Barcelona. From the last May 2019, he was spending vacation and did not get connected with any team. All in a sudden, he got the phone call from Barcelona. To take the decision, he did not spend five minutes but agreed. Arriving at the Camp Nou in his dream club, the former boss of Real Betis promised that Barcelona will play good football.
After sacking the former Catalan manager Ernesto Valverde, Barcelona has brought Satien in the last Monday. According to the agreement, Setien will stay at the Nou Camp until 2022. From the last Tuesday, the new manager has started to work with his squad. By attending the press conference, earlier today he revealed that he is not believing the thing still that the 61 years old man is the coach of the top European club Barcelona.

Under his guidance, there are some best players in the World are practicing. Yes, Setien has thanked the club and it did not come to his farthest dream to come here. Today is the special day for the coach and he is grateful for that. He has got the challenge of the project also. Yesterday, he was in his town but now today, he has become the coach of the top-rated football players in the World.
Since long, the future of Valverde was uncertain at the Nou Camp. There were so many rumours as well. Finally, when Barca was defeated against Atletico Madrid in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup, the fate of Ernesto Valverde has been decided. To take his place, Quique Setien did not take more than five minutes to think. Yes, he has confirmed that later. The call from Barcelona was the biggest surprise to Setien.

He does not have a rich CV and so, he did not even think of being the manager of Barcelona earlier. But his philosophy is quite similar to Barcelona. So, he does not think of getting success right now. What he has, his philosophy and he loves that very much. Though he did not know if it is right but he is grateful. When he takes control of a team, he can assure the fans that the team will play good football. No, he does not know if his way is the right way but it is his path and he believes in it. Setien likes different ideas for getting success. Obviously his main priority is to win everything.
