Setien ‘interested’ in Barca players

Real Betis Coach Quique Setien would be interested in signing any player from the current Barcelona squad, he has admitted.

The Seville-based club have been linked with moves to out-of-favour Barca duo Denis Suarez and Paco Alcacer, who both look set to leave the Blaugrana this summer.

“Who would I sign from Barcelona? All of them! Each player in their squad is fantastic and if any were available, we would take notice,” Setien told El Mundo Deportivo.

“Style of play is very important, you see the best of players when they are able to express themselves, and not just in terms of the work they do defensively.

“It is important for players to be able to run forward with the ball, to make intelligent moves and smart passing, they need to enjoy playing football.

“Barcelona? They enjoyed an extraordinary season and yes, they had one bad game, but who does not? They won the league and cup with authority. Valverde’s work has been spectacular.”
