Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona​ chose to Quique Setién in January by his philosophy of game, quite move# away of the one of Ernesto Valverde. The 'Txingurri' exhausted the patience of the Managerial Board and finish being sacked after falling in the Supercopa of Spain. Then it arrived the Cantabrian to impose his idea and try do of the Barça a distinct team. The ex of the Betis always wants the ball and does not consent that his players do not dominate through the spherical.

The problem for Setién is that had very little time to impose this philosophy in a changing room that was accustomed to Valverde and his ideas. In the 12 parties that has directed since it is in the Barça, has seen to an irregular team that does not finish to be comfortable in the field. There has been good meetings in which the culés have left good feelings, but also others in which they have been an authentic disaster.

Precisely by this, this stop caused by the coronavirus could be just what needed the technician blaugrana. In this turn to the work is having the time that did not have when it arrived in January with a staff to the limit that did not have margin of error. Since the Spanish clubs have happened to the Phase 3 of the protocol of LaLiga in this return to the trainings, Setién has taken action and is working to do of the Barcelona the team that for real wants to see.

'Sportive world' ensures that now that it can train in groups reduced, with alone 10 footballers at the same time, the santanderino is incidiendo a lot in two appearances that for him are fundamental: the exit from backwards and the circulation of ball. In all his teams since it is trainer, the Cantabrian always has wanted that his players take out the balloon without fear from his own area. With the quality that have the Barcelona, this would have to be much simpler that in his previous stages.

Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti are central with quality that always have stood out by his clean exit of ball. Also Marc-André ter Stegen shines with the ball and therefore Setién want to that they explain more with him to the hour to build game from backwards. Nélson Semedo And Sergi Roberto also are skillful to the hour to go out playing and Jordi Alba carries years perfecting this appearance, by what the sides also have to be of help.

Together lines, continuous helps and a lot of mobility

To facilitate this exit of balloon, Setién is insisting a lot in that the lines are very together and that there are helps and mobility continuously. The ex of The Palms does not want to his static players as in a lot of moments in what it goes of 2020. His idea of game requires that all move so that the one who have the ball always have to a mate to the that give it. This week and the one who comes will try pulir all this and from 1 June, when they joint all, will put to proof the work that already is making. The aim is that it see a Barça distinct the 19, that is when in theory will return LaLiga.
