Setien: Betis must stay humble

Real Betis must remain ‘humble’ despite their current five-game winning run insists Coach Quique Setien who wants ‘to remain true to these ideas’.

Los Verdiblancos sit fifth in La Liga and on course for qualifying for next season’s Europa League but they must ‘manage and control’ the ‘added pressure’.

“You have to be humble even after winning five matches,” Setien is cited as saying by Sevilla Info.

“Betis hired me to do what I am doing and the important thing is to keep to these ideas and be true to them, the numbers (points and victories) are anecdotes.

“It is important to remain calm in these situation, last year we had a bonanza in Las Palmas and the future seemed bright, but then everything changed.

“I am proud of what we have achieved and to be in a position to break a half-century old record, it is not always usual to be on such a run.

“We did not expect to be in this situation of qualifying for Europe, we wanted to be close and we must manage and control the added pressure generated.”
