Barcelona coach Quique Setien said that he has always been impressed by what his star Lionel Messi has been doing, as well as the Catalan team for the past decade, but his admiration for the Argentine magician is a thing and training him is another, in his interview with reporters.
Quique Setien says he did not imagine in his “wildest dreams” that he would become Barcelona manager.
Setien has replaced Ernesto Valverde on a contract until the end of the 2021-22 season and was unveiled at a press conference on Tuesday.
“I want to thank this institution for giving me the chance,” Setien said.
“Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this. I have to thank the club. I’m excited about this challenge and this project.
Setien added: “Yesterday, I was walking around my home town with cows around me and now I’m here at Barcelona managing the best players in the world.”
Barcelona will face Granada at Camp Nou in the first match of Quique as the coach of the team on Sunday, in the 20 th round of the Spanish League.
