Do not miss a detail of the official presentation of Quique Setién as a new coach of FC Barcelona for the next two and a half seasons. The coach will pose at the Camp Nou for the first time and say his first words as culé
This past Monday was absolutely frantic for the FC Barcelona, that in hardly some hours destituyó of official way to Ernesto Valverde and hired like new technician to Quique Setién. The Cantabrian will be trainer of the Barça until June of 2022 and will sign his new agreement with the culés this same Tuesday to the midday. In 'FCBN' will be able to be still in direct his official presentation like barcelonista.
The act in yes will give beginning to the 13:30 of the midday in the Loge President Suñol in a private act in which it will sign his links to the Barcelona entity until 2022. After this formalism, from the 14:00 hours, will arrive the classical presentation in front of the means and the back press conference. In principle, the appearance in front of the press went to be to the 14:30 hours, but the Barcelona decided to change the order this Tuesday in the morning.
Later, to the 14:30 roughly, it will arrive the moment of the classical photographies in the Camp Nou to which confront all the new signings, also the trainers. Josep Maria Bartomeu will accompany at all times to the santanderino in his act of presentation. The president of the Barça has been key so that the ex of the Betis was the successor of Valverde in the charge.
As it informed the Catalan journalist Quim Domènech in 'The Chiringuito', Bartomeu and the more veterans of the managerial board culé wanted to Setién already. On the other hand, the youngest core of the directive preferred to put in the charge to Javier García Pepper until June and go then to by Xavi Hernández. Finally, it imposed the most veteran sector of the president and the elected was the ex verdiblanco.
The management of the Barça with Valverde
It expects that in this first press conference the journalists also ask him to the maximum mandator of the Barcelona if it thinks that has managed as it would owe the dismissal of the 'Txingurri'. The true is that the club has not carried as it would owe with the extremeño and this is something that no longer has gone back of leaf. Bartomeu could give explanations this Tuesday before Setién say his first words.
It is necessary to remember that the Cantabrian was not neither much less the first option of the Barça to relieve to Valverde. Xavi was the big favourite of all the managerial board and also the one of the changing room, but refused the offer. Afterwards, the club contacted with Ronald Koeman, that also declined the proposal to head to Holland in the next Eurocopa. Then, the options that remained were the one of Mauritius Pochettino, that said "no" by his past in the Espanyol, García Pepper, of the B, and the one of a Setién that could see fulfilled at last his dream to direct to the Barcelona.
