"What want to, quarry or advance?". Those were the words that used Quique Setién in his interview for TV3 of this week. Some statements that expanded later ensuring that the players of the Barça B had not convinced him in these months that carries in the charge. "To me they have not convinced me of the all so that they play more than what have done. We are training with all those that think that can give this step, but have not found the opportunity to fit them", ensured for the 'BE'.

This thought has pillado totally by surprise to all the members of the filial culé and of the Masia, that did not expect some words like this of the Cantabrian. The newspaper 'Sport' ensures that these statements have not seated well, since the santanderino always had had fame to support to the quarry. All expected a greater support by his part and never had thought that went to launch a criticism like this.

From the B understand that the opportunities in the first team do not give , but no that they launch messages like this of conclusive. The more youngsters need confidence to take out his best football and put them so much pressure could be contraproducente for them and for the club in general. Besides, taking into account that this course the Barcelona could have problems for fichar by the economic crisis, the canteranos could have a more important paper that never.

By all this does not understand that in his glimpsed the big critical of Setién to the club have been aiming to the quarry. The Masia has in the memory to Ernesto Valverde, that the same that Setién also had been a technician that in his previous clubs had explained a lot with the youngest. These statements do to fear that the opportunities, the same that with the 'Txingurri', arrive to dropper or that not even arrive.

Setién Insists in his idea of not throwing of the quarry

The ex of the Betis confirmed in another of his interviews that the canteranos have to improve and that had not used them because the situation required another thing. "All the players of the quarry have an extraordinary potential, but all have to improve. They have played those that were better. I have seen that the team needed experience, players that gave me maturity and templanza. The Barcelona needs to win all the parties. You can not you allow the luxury to lose parties if you want to be up", explained, leaving fall that it could not risk to put to the youngest.

These words and the previously mentioned contrast a lot with what said when arriving to the club in his presentation. "If they push and they win it to him, can play in the first team", admitted in his day. As it comments now, anybody has won it to him by the moment, although the Barça B is doing an excellent season. The filial goes second of his group of Second B and footballers like Monchu, Álex Hill, Akieme or Riqui Puig are shining. All have trained with the greater, and Riqui and Hill even have had some minute, but any has settled and has had real opportunities to play. It will be necessary to see if Setién changes of opinion when it go back the championship or of face to the next year.
