Real Betis manager Quique Setien was understandably a very happy man after his side’s 4-3 win at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

His team produced a brilliant display to take all three points, and after the match he was aked if he’d like to take charge of Barcelona at some point in the future.

“I am really happy with today’s win,” he said. “This is a huge slap on the back for what we’re doing because a lot of people aren’t sure about this manner of playing and [this performance] helps us to keep growing.

”Everything else... it’s true, I have admired Barcelona’s type of football all my life, ever since I was a player and I came here to play and never touched the ball. But despite this defeat, Barcelona still have a great coach and I am really happy where I am at the moment.”
