Ernesto Valverde left to the FC Barcelona colíder of LaLiga Santander beside the Real Madrid and classified for the eighth of final of the Champions League, but in the team there are a lot of appearances that have to improve immediately after the nomination of Quique Setién like trainer of the first team. To continuation, some of them.

Recover the good game

Quique Setién likes from does time to the Barça by the proposal futbolística that offers, based in the game of position and of possession, defending with the ball and attacking with an intense pressure and a fluent circulation. The big challenge of the Cantabrian is to recover this style that carried to the club to the most glorious period of his history of the hand of Pep Guardiola, that in his day also learnt of Johan Cruyff.

The signing of a forward

If when Valverde began his career like technician of the Barça saw without Neymar, traspasado to Paris Saint-Germain, Setién has found with another important problem: the injury of long length Luis Suárez, that will be four months without being able to play. Like this the things, the Cantabrian trainer and his staff will have to decide on the possible signing of a forward centre this same month of January to cover the drop of the Uruguayan, but will have hardly a week to value it and take a decision.

Opportunities to the quarry

With Valverde have missed the opportunities to the young perlas of the Masia, trusting they only in cases of emergency like sucedió with Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez when there was low in the forward. Of Setién expects greater confidence in the youngsters and opportunities for footballers like Riqui Puig, to the that hardly has seen with the Txingurri.

Take out the best of each player

There are specific cases of the staff that Setién would have to treat with care as, for example, the one of Arturo Vidal that with Valverde has been important but that bumps with the style that the santanderino will try to impose. Besides, it would have to look for him to Griezmann a place so that it could take out his best potential or would have to cover situations of footballers that are being argued like Sergio Busquets or Ivan Rakitic.

Immediate results

In a club like the FC Barcelona there are not periods of transition and the mejoría with Setién in the bench would not have to take in seeing . We speak of results in the widest sense of the word, from winning parties to improve the bad game deployed with Valverde to the control. Of course, also they expect titles, since it would be a hard hit live a year in white. The Cantabrian has little time for inculcar his ideas to the staff, but trusts fully in his methodology.
