Quique Setien began his first day as Barcelona manager on Tuesday by overseeing the first of two training sessions in the morning.

The 61-year-old is due to sign his contract early in the afternoon, hold a press conference and then head back out onto the training pitch for another session

Barcelona B’s Inaki Pena, Ronald Araujo, Riqui Puig, Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati were all included in the sessions. The presence of Puig in particular will offer optimism the youngster might get a chance to stake a claim under the new boss.

Arthur also took part in some of the session as he continues his way back to full fitness, while Jean-Clair Todibo is still absent and presumably still about to sign for Schalke unless the managerial change has seen him jump on the first flight back to Barca.
