Quique Setién debuted this Saturday as coach of Barça, and did it confirming everything he had said days ago. The new coach used eight homegrown players during the match against Granada
The FC Barcelona started this Sunday a new stage, and the era of Quique Setién premièred with a victory worked in LaLiga. The Granada sold expensive his defeat but finish capitulating in front of the insistence of the leader, that obtained three points deserved that they give him back to the highest of the classification. The meeting was promising because it left positive conclusions, although it reflected that hardly it is a starting point.
The technician did not take too much in showing that the promises of his presentation and all the past week went seriously, and achieved that it noticed that his bet will be dared, offensive and based in the football of possession and touch. His pupilos had some problems of depth and rhythm, but hardly suffered in defence and dominated to the rival thanks to his mobility, speed in the pass and high pressure.
Another significant data in the account of the míster is that it used to eight players arisen in the Masia, the base of the recent successes of the culés. The Camp Nou prepares already to sack to the best generation of footballers of the history of the club, but this does not mean that those that come behind are not prepared to collect the witness and keep an attractive and recognizable style that guide them in the demanding fight by the titles.
In the initial alignment, that did not go especially new, already explained six canteranos, the veteran majority although with some spark of youth. Rear to forward appeared the sides Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba, the central Gerard Hammered, the pivote Sergio Busquets and the attacker Leo Messi, to which joined , because of the delicate drop of Luis Suárez, an extreme, in this case right, as Ansu Fati.
The products of the house were accompanied by Marc-André ter Stegen, Samuel Umtiti, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic and Antoine Griezmann, but one of the decisive changes also aimed to the Barça B. Riqui Puig substituted to the Croatian and elevated the presence to seven, before Arthur went in by the Chilean and that Carles Pérez closed the local participation going in by the born forward in Guinea Bissau.
Setién Does not want relaxation in the Barça
Another of the points that Setién left clear from his arrival is that it pretends that the mejoría of the team lengthen in thetime , and that do not remain everything in a bunch of good intentions that by relaxation finish losing continuity. The trainer underlined in the press conference post split that this has to be only a principle, and that to base of work and with something more than time and patience, his have to go to more.
