Quique Setién landed in the benches of the FC Barcelona in January of 2020 like a 'apagafuegos' after the dismissal of the charge of Ernesto Valverde. The trainer of Santander had made a big work in the Betis, team to the that consolidated between the best of Spain practising a very showy football. However, his career in the City Condal was far to go as it expected , and in spite of culminating with a positive record, the lose the League with the Madrid and the humiliation suffered in front of the Bayern in Champions condemned his place.

Now, and after two years in the ostracism, the ex technician blaugrana will be the protagonist of a new episode of 'Inform Plus', which will be issued this Thursday to the 22:00 hours in 'Go'. In an advance of the interview, the Cantabrian did not want to 'wet' in this regard of his relation with Messi in the changing room and out of him, and now has gone out to the light a new fragment in which Setién remembers the episode of Gerard Hammered arriving in bicycle to the Camp Nou to contest the derbi Catalan.

In that moment, this situation generated a big controversy around the central, that is not extraneous to the controversies. The player arrived to the Estadi handling the bicycle without helmet and at full speed, generating a big stir between the means and the bloated. However, Quique did not give him greater importance to the subject and like this did it know in the interview.

"I go you to explain an anecdote. You agree you of a party that Hammered went down in bicycle to the changing room? They happen me the video before beginning the party and that alone day had two head offices: he and do not know if it was Lenglet. Then, when they teach me the video, approached to him and said him 'hear, Gerard, and this?'", it explained the trainer, the one who later desveló the answer of an immutable Hammered, that answered him with an escueto "míster, does not happen at all".

The unexpected end

In this sense, Setién 'redobló' the bet to the central and affirms that it asked him on the afterwards. "Listen me, now when it finish the party and have to go I to the press conference to give the explanations that have to give and ask after me this what say?". By his part, and faithful to his style, Gerard him insistó that it did not happen at all for having arrived in bicycle, and Quique, because of the numerous drops with which explained for the derbi, had to give him the titularity. A decision that finished going out well for the trainer, that ensured that the defender "was the best of the party".
