As it is used to say sometimes, Quique Setién "was born to be in the FC Barcelona". The Cantabrian technician is one of the trainers that better football has practised in LaLiga in the last seasons and arrives to the team barcelonista to try give him back the illusion to the fans culé. The santanderino never has hid his admiration by the Barça and along his career has done several winks that could have him helped to finish heading to the Barcelona.

The newspaper 'ACE' has recopilado all these insinuations of Quique to the Barcelona. In Twitter, for example, the ex of the Betis profesó his admiration by Johan Cruyff and his style in March of 2016.

"But how it plays Iniesta to the football! Which luck have that it was ours and can enjoy with him!", it wrote.

In 2017 it began to speak of the possibility that Setién arrived to the Barcelona. He subtracted him importance and said not knowing if it felt prepared still for a so big jump. "They state me the rumours that tie me to the Barcelona, but is a possibility that do not contemplate. I do not know if have the level to train to the Barcelona. I have been two years training in First and have a clear idea of how plays the Barça, a lot of things that do come of the philosophy Cruyff", affirmed.

Also there were insinuations of the surroundings of the barcelonismo to Setién, since in May of 2018 the Foundation Cruyff said of him that was the "trainer that better represents the values of the Dutch". A pair of months later, the one of Santander launched a wink to Leo Messi when going up to Twitter a photography with a T-shirt of the Argentinian beside one of Luka Modric.

"For Quique, with appreciate and admiration. By your way to see the football. An embrace", put the one of Badia. This occurred because after the 3-4 of the Betis to the Barça, the Cantabrian asked him his T-shirt in some images that attracted the cameras.

The second goal of the Barça has been of cartoons. To win to this team have to have tarpaulin in your occasions because you know that this team being Messi goes you to mark. The tarpaulin of this team with Messi leaves little capacity to the rival", signalled.

It does it all the parties. It is a luxury have him seen each Sunday, coincide with him. It has liked me a lot that our public there is him ovacionado, that have valued to a player that today have suffered, but that enjoy usually. It is just and honourable recognise it, am proud of the behaviour of the fans", recognised.

Finally, in May of 2019, after being ceased of the Betis, in the 'Chain BE' asked him if it would like him train to the Barça in the future and he did not doubt in admitting that yes.
