Quique Setién has arrived at Barça stomping and has already changed many things in the Barca team. The change of system when attacking and defending would not convince the locker room, which wants the Champions League and does not know if they will achieve it this way.

The new FC Barcelona of Quique Setién threw to walk does something more than a week and, for the moment, is leaving quite a lot of doubts in some appearances of his game. The culés have won two of the three parties in which the Cantabrian has seated in the bench, but both cost him a lot. The changes that is doing the santanderino could improve a lot to the Barça to half or long term, but for the time being the thing is not working.

In fact, in the newspaper Sport aim that the changing room barcelonista begins to have doubts on the idea of Setién and the change of system that has done. The players want to win the Champions League this course and do not know if they go to be able to adapt to what asks them the technician to be competitive in the next months. The footballers believe in the method Setién, but know that it is very distinct to split with a project of zero in pre-season to do it to fault of six months for the end.

The ex of the Betis would be incidiendo a lot in working the positional game to adapt to the system of three head offices that is using since it has arrived to the Barça. The one of Cantabria wants that players know when keep the position, when move and when desmarcarse. But this so clear idea of game would do that there are some footballers that are not of the all comfortable. To ones asks them that they do not lose the place and to others that are in constant movement. This causes that some seat limited by not being able to give all what could and others seat that they give more than what would owe.

With the change of three head offices, the defences do not give to suffice, since in what it loses a balloon is used to to have a dangerous counterattack and many times there is a three for three or a two for three. Defensivamente The Barça of Valverde already left doubts, but east of Setién is leaving even more by this reason. The changing room is trying to work in what it says the trainer of Santander, but does not know if they go to have the necessary time as to accustom to the changes.

In attack also there are important problems by the idea of Setién, that wants to centre in having the balloon. That is the philosophy of the club and therefore him fichó, but in the team see that lacking depth, mordiente and that there are few players by in front of the balloon to look for the rival goal. Circulate the ball with more speed, throw desmarques of split, change of positions... All this requires work and time, but this last is precisely what the Barcelona does not have for the time being.

The speech of Setién likes, but lacking time

The speech of Setién has calado in the changing room, but the footballers do not hide the doubts that have of face to this campaign. The League of Champions is just around the corner and the staff has fear of not being prepared for then. The disasters of Rome and Liverpool are still very present and do not want to repeat them in front of the Naples or any rival that can arrive afterwards. It will be necessary to see if the Barça attains to understand and reflect in the terrain of game the idea of the ex bético and can compete by the 'Orejona' this course.
