15 January 2020
EUROPE- Barcelona technical director Eric Abidal has taken a swipe at former boss Ernesto Valverde claiming there were very positive changes, without new boss Quique Setien having done anything yet.
According to Abidal, Setien is the new coach of Barcelona and he’s already having an impact with the atmosphere in training changing immediately while speaking at his introduction.
“We like Quique Setien for his philosophy. He was quoted by Marca.
“I saw a lot of changes today in the training session, very positive ones, without Quique having done anything yet.
“I think it’ll all go well.
“The perfect coach is Quique Setien and we have confidence in him and his staff.
“The most important thing for me is the feeling he has with his players.
“It’s the way of working, his focus on the detail.
“That’s important when it comes to winning LaLiga Santander or the Champions League.
“I wish him the best and we’re here to help.”
