Quique Setién already carries some weeks training to the FC Barcelona and to day of today works to transmit his ideas to the players of the first team to try change some things in search of improvements. In a recent round of interviews, the Cantabrian trainer showed optimistic and loved with the attitude of his players.

The Barcelona trainer affirmed to be satisfied with what is seeing of his players by the moment. "I am very happy with the process in general. All the players have a very high capacity to interpret what transmits them and afterwards because have an extraordinary attitude to do it and this satisfies me enormously because like this everything is much easier", commented, in an interview for Sportive World.

Setién Did special upsetting in the important that is the mental appearance in the game. "There are things that did and that already cost us. And it does not be necessary to change them. In the Supercopa saw 70 minutes in that the team loved me doing a spectacular party. Afterwards there are phases, although you can not avoid that they do you two or three occasions, in which it needs the rigour and the mental discipline to keep concentrated. If this team is rigorous and plays concentrated does not go to suffer so much", said.

Precisely one of the mental appearances that seems that it weighs is the play out of house, something that the own technician recognised. "It seems that it has installed a psychosis here. The numbers are not at all good for a club like the Barcelona. Now we go to have two very serious parties and go to see if we go to be able to give this level of improvement out of house", manifested.

"Go out of the zone of comfort is a requirement"

As a result of this and of hard parties like the ones of Rome or Liverpool, Setién was asked after the possibility to have a psychologist for the staff. "To me it has gone me well without psychologist. There are things that would like me achieve and that it had liked to achieve of me same and that never could. Each one is as it is. But the attitude is the most important. And you win them. And you seat and you perceive that they want to win in each exercise of the training, want to win every time that are competing until in the reduced of the trainings. This does it all easier", affirmed.

Asked after the average of age of the vertebral column of the staff, upper to the 30 years, Setién answered that it does not think that this go to be a problem. "If have the balloon and are happy, the psychological load of what are doing is a lot of lower of if you are running permanently behind the balloon or doing distances that can cover us. This goes to change a lot the mentality of a lot of players, know that your routes are of 10 metres to recover the balloon in rival field and no of 40 to backwards. Some time will have to do them and any you pillarán. It is not the same to run to in front that to backwards", ensured.

Setién Insisted in the need to go back to do that the Barça live in contrary field, and not expecting further back as it has sucedido lately. "It is truth that to some footballers costs them go out of this zone of comfort, but this is a requirement, this no longer is negotiable, you have to do this. Because this is good for the team and if all want to do this and improve this and besides have brought me to me for this, it is necessary to do it and it is necessary to treat to do it", sentenced.

Train to Leo Messi

In another interview for Sport, Setién also spoke about Leo Messi, expecting that it play a lot of years more in the FC Barcelona and recalcando the importance to do him feel to taste. "I expect that we do him so happy that was wishing to remain. It will be here in the future, I do not have doubts", commented.

Besides, the Cantabrian desveló how have been his first contacts with the Argentinian star. "The contacts have been very normal as with any another player. It is very convinced that we can win. It perceives him that it is a winner and concerns that it do the things well. It puts interest in the talks. It knows that it is an important part, that can resolve a lot of parties, but have to base us in the team to be stronger", concluded.
