Quique Setién gave this Tuesday his first steps like new technician of the FC Barcelona, so much to level mediático as to sportive level. The recently arrived confronted to the acts protocolarios of the day of his presentation, and also lived an animated day of trainings with double session that took advantage of to start with to know to his new pupilos, with which wants to put to the day before starting the fight by the titles.

The Cantabrian did a statement of intentions on what will be his project in the Camp Nou, and explained that it prepares some changes. "The context goes to be different and the predisposition of which did not play will be higher, and of which played also. There will be a series of changes and have to do me a composition", ensured when it was questioned on systems, alignments and referents chosen for his diagrams.

Still of far, because it asked calm to adapt to the changing room, spoke of quarry, trainings and signings, that will go defining to measure that know with which account and what think that is missing him. To start with, it opened to the youngsters the door of the first team, also warned that it could test with a 4-4-2 flexible -in addition to the usual 4-3-3- and commented that it has not had time to analyse if the drop of Luis Suárez forces to an immediate reinforcement.

With these perspectives in the starting point, the one of Santander could begin to pose novelties, that would end in a renewed configuration of the staff line by line. Obviously, it is necessary to take into account that his bet finish to be born and party to party will go strengthening and clearing, but these are some of the modifications that could enter in the coming months:

The changes that could face the Barça


Unless the injury of Marc-André ter Stegen was more delicate of the planned, do not foresee low changes sticks, because the German is to an extraordinary level and keeps regularly between the best guardamentas of the world. In the last weeks, Net Walled has left clear that ficharle was a good played, but everything aims to that it will have to conform with being a secondary of a lot of level.


One of the most important cases is what sucederá in the axis of the saga, with some doubts on the central that could begin to move away when it plant to Jean-Clair Todibo. The Frenchman will go yielded to the Schalke and Setién already is testing to Chumi and Ronald Araujo for dosificar to Gerard Hammered, and it will be necessary to observe also his decisions in relation to Clément Lenglet that seems intocable and Samuel Umtiti in the sight.

The sides also could face some changes, something that deduces of his 'winks' to Junior Firpo. The ex of the Real Betis has reassured to Jordi Alba to the that follows considering title, but has revealed without cutting that it will come him very more competition. Equally, it could test to Moussa Wagué before 'wet' on Nélson Semedo and confirm if Sergi Roberto is lateral or goes back to be midfield player.

Centre of the field

In the staff of the Barça there is numerous effective in the medullary, and this is a key zone to recover the joy in the game. Many wish to know which are the plans of the míster, that will have to give back the spark to stars that have the just petrol like Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic, adapt to Arturo Vidal that it is a joker and, perhaps, fine-tune to Frenkie of Jong and Arthur, his best 'peloteros', so that the culés recover the command, precision and effectiveness with the balloon. Perlas Like Riqui Puig also could be leading.


The most delicate case in the leading is the one of Luis Suárez, but there are a lot of questions that also need answer. If the training varies to a 4-4-2, Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann could be indispensable, although it also touches to fit to the turn signal Ousmane Dembélé and do gap for youngsters like Ansu Fati or Carles Pérez. On the way to the window estival there is a lot of work for doing.


Setién Has warned that will look often to the Barça B in search of alternatives, and that will be in equality of conditions with the 'greater'. It is by them that the Riqui Puig, Araujo, Chumi, Ansu or Carles Pérez could have more minutes in the final stretch of the campaign, as long as, as it has underlined, follow progressing and contribute equal or more than what would do any of his mates. This is the base on which will handle the trainer, and now touches to check how answers him the football.
