Quique Setién stands out for being one of the coaches who has practiced best football in Europe in recent years. Barça has signed him for that and the coach could empower several important players of the squad
The FC Barcelona has fichado to Quique Setién by several reasons, but definitely the most important is the will to recover the style and the philosophy that implanted Johan Cruyff. Luis Enrique already began a reconversion in a Barça that began to play more to the counterattack to take advantage of the speed of the 'MSN'. Ernesto Valverde, years afterwards, went a bit further and his team left to give him the importance to the balloon that would owe.
The culés, in spite of following leaders in League and be classified for the eighth of Champions League, were going clearly to worse, and Josep Maria Bartomeu decided that the best was to change of trainer. Setién Is the opposite to Valverde in a lot of senses and therefore it expects that there are changes pronounced in many respects. The game and the conception of the same will be one, but also there will be changes in the performance of several footballers.
The style of game of the teams in which it has been the santanderino, indicates that it goes to have footballers of the Barcelona that go to more with him in the bench. One of them could be Clément Lenglet, that already with the 'Txingurri' has had spectacular moments, but that with Setién could go to more. To the Cantabrian loves him that his head offices take it out from backwards and so much the French as I Hammered could give a jump in his game. The ex sevillista perhaps a bit more, since has more ceiling that Gerard that it already is in his last years of career. With Quique in the bank, the good pass in short and long of the international by France could give him a new dimension to the Barça and also to his own game.
Although Lenglet can improve his performance, definitely the player that more benefited could see with the arrival of Setién is Frenkie of Jong. The qualities of the Dutch are ideal for the style that likes him to the ex bético. With Valverde, although it has surrendered well, the Dutch has not finished to explode all his virtues, but with the ex of The Palms the thing could change. The Cantabrian could do that the ex of the Ajax go down more to receive to improve his good exit of balloon. Besides, this new Barça will have more possession, by what this will help to that Frenkie can feel more leader. When it return of his injury, also Arthur Melo could improve his performance. The Brazilian is ideal for a group that want to have the balloon and with Setién could be decisive. He and the international 'orange' go to be keys for the renewed Barcelona of the of Santander.
Griezmann Also could reach his best version
In the forward, Antoine Griezmann can be fundamental in the diagram of Setién. The French, although it has gone to more with the step of the weeks, has not finished to start with Valverde. The 'Txingurri' planted him in static left band and this does not benefit in at all his a lot of qualities. With the injury of Luis Suárez, is likely that the ex rojiblanco play with more freedom in the field. The new technical culé is used to to use mobile forwards and with quality, by what the French seems perfect for his style. With the ex of The Palms in the bench Griezmann could at last arrive to his best version.
Other two footballers in concrete also go to have luck with the signing of the ex player of Racing or Logroñés. Junior Firpo arrived to the Barça to give them competition to Jordi Alba and can progress little by little. The Hispanic-dominican, nevertheless, is not giving the level expected until the moment. Setién Was the one who discovered it in Seville and the one who more has improved him up to now. His reunion could be key so that the ex canterano verdiblanco go tomore . The another player that will improve with the trainer of Santander will be Riqui Puig, that at last seems that will have an opportunity in the first team. The style of the of Matadepera is pure Quique Setién and will be interesting to see how evolves.
It is necessary to signal that players of quality like Leo Messi or Sergio Busquets also could versen improved. In the teams of Setién, all the good are used to to be still better, but is evident that in the case of the '10' or even of 'Busi', 'cracks' world-wide in his place, the purely individual improvement will not be so evident as it occur with others. Collectively, nevertheless, both yes will have it simpler to shine with the style of the santanderino, and, if this sucede, therefore the Barça will be more Barça.
