Quique Setien future at Real Betis unclear

Quique Setien will remain Real Betis boss for their upcoming clash with Espanyol but his long-term future remains uncertain, say reports in Spain.

El Mundo Deportivo say that Betis chiefs, including Director of Football Lorenzo Serra Ferrer, met on Thursday to discuss the immediate situation of the Coach.

Wednesday night’s 4-0 defeat at Levante – who had not previously won in nine games – marked a new low in a tough season for the club, who are now out of contention for a European place.

The report outlines how Setien’s contract at the Seville-based club expires in the summer of 2020 and should Los Verdiblancos dismiss him now rather than at the end of the season, the compensation package would be significantly more.

Alaves boss Abelardo Fernandez has been linked with replacing Setien at the club this summer.
