Setién: “We are just as favorites as Real Madrid”

first_imgIt is important to always overcome the rival’s plan. We are two different styles. Barça plays as it has been playing for years and Getafe plays as it has played for years. The important thing is that your plan and your forms surpass those of the rival. It is neither more nor less important. The important thing is that whatever you do, you do it well. And both teams do well.How is Luis Suarez, do you have prospects of reappearing earlier?I do not know. I don’t even talk to doctors about this yet. I ask him, I shake his hand and encourage him to continue working. It will take time and hopefully you can reduce your time off.Do you have the feeling or would you like your team to make a round match to cheer everyone up?We’ll see. Of course I would love to be able to resolve within ten minutes of starting but this is difficult. We tend to minimize rivals and rivals have things to say and every day LaLiga we see it. It is increasingly difficult to win the games, it is not easy to win the rivals and you have to do things right. But I am happy with the process we are taking. As I always tell you, there are always things to improve and the reality is that it is not easy. LaLiga is very competitive and not easy. And you’ll see Getafe.How do you see Messi?He has the experience of knowing whether or not he can be in the field. And if it can, it’s because it’s fine. The same must be told to dose him, but this is like everything. I don’t have that much time to really assess what happens. In many cases it is not even necessary to rest.I used to say that they are waiting for the Medical Commission to see if they can sign. Do you have resources if the opinion is negative?All my life I have adapted to what I come from. If they give permission to sign a player, it is preferable. But plan we will always find because in the end you have to play with eleven and this we will do. We will adapt and find the way.In the case of not being able to sign a player, can King Manaj have continuity?They really are not tests. We are convinced that they can help. We don’t know Rey at all yet, nor do we know exactly what he can give. There are many things that you have to understand but your disposition is extraordinary and it is understood that you are going to help us and the subsidiary. Every day we see players of the subsidiary, we incorporate them and they will enter as the first team relaxes. Of courseIn April, a coach commented that the ideal team for Setién was Barça. Do you subscribe to that phrase by David Vidal?With David Vidal I spent two years in Logroño at a very good stage for Logroñés, for the city, and we really enjoyed football. It is true that it was not what it is today. There was no ball out but he knew my involvement with football and the enthusiasm I put into things. There are things you say. I will never do this. It is clear that my way of understanding football was associated with how Barça has played. It is what I feel, what I like and what I really know how to convey. Then there are details that are personal nuances.Do you think they are favorites for the Champions League?There are seven or eight teams and among them we are.Do you celebrate Valentine?I’m very romantic. The idyll with this club do not know who to put some flowers. It’s a huge satisfaction, almost the same as when I met my wife.What would you say to the fans to come to the field?Well, we will be stronger with your support.Does the team lack overflow?I think that the ideal would be for each player to do what is required at all times and it is normal that this happens. What we try for many to understand is that. We must break and come in support. These are decisions that must be made depending on how the opponent is. And ideally, they decide well. It is not one thing more than the other. Quique Setién attended the media at the previous press conference of the match that will face Barcelona against Getafe. Tomorrow visit Camp Nou el Getafe. What makes it so hard to win?The Getafe is a team that has been showing time that it does things well. He has a plan that develops very well, in fact it has taken him where he is. He is in Europe, third classified and is a team that is very committed, difficult to win and is in a great moment. It seems that everything comes out and the plan they have is good, they are doing very well and it will be complicated.Is your relationship with Bordalás a challenge for you?I look at the rivals. On the subject of Bordalás, I have forgotten it and I am not going to talk about it.Will you greet him?I told him that I was not going to comment on this subject.Do you see Getafe as a rival in LaLiga?The difficult thing for a team is to stay on top. There are teams with great gusts and the difficult thing is to keep it in time. Now he will have important matches in Europe. The Getafe last year already remained there.How do you see Umtiti?I have no doubt that he will play at his highest level. He is already doing it. In many actions that we have analyzed with all players, Umtiti is an extraordinary player. It will help us and we have no doubt that its performance will be good. Everyone can have a punctual error, I included. But Umtiti has done things well and we are delighted. He has had some minor inconvenience but is perfect to compete.Would it be a problem not to have a replacement for Dembélé?I will be prepared for what I touch, and to work with it. The reality is that we will adapt to what you touch. We must wait for the Committee’s response to see if it allows us to sign. I guess they will accept it and that the club is already working on it.In the call of 18 is King Manaj. How is it?He is a player with defined characteristics. I think he can give us things. That is why we have included him in the call. Given the possibility that something could happen we have a replacement that can come in handy as Abel and other players came in.Did you like Loren?I do not know anything. If Rubi said it … I’m not going to talk about this. I have nothing to say.He said the team would improve but they generate many occasions. How good is it to have two weeks off?I don’t know if I agree with what he is saying. It is true that Betis has a player like Fekir who can make occasions, but we are not receiving many occasions. We have been improving it and I hope to continue doing it. We are quite satisfied with what we are getting. We are seeing that there are many things in relation to the first games that we have improved. And this is the way. And surely we will continue. I don’t know if it will give us to win because the opponent can have one like in Bilbao. There are many things that I am satisfied with and that we are doing well because they are analyzed with conviction.Valverde says he sees Madrid strong. Have you lost the status of favorites?Many leagues have always decided on details and in recent games. In situations that you will not be able to control. We are just as favorite as Madrid. It is true that we get three points but we have a game there and we have expectations. Of course we will go all the way to the Bernabéu.How’s Jong doing?He is a receptive player. He wants to improve and has no roof. He is a huge footballer who is doing good things every day. And he is doing things he did before. We hope it continues to grow and continues to improve.You see two teams with opposite styles. Is it important to impose it?last_img
