Quique Setien is grateful to the Barcelona board for giving him the chance to take the club’s reins.

After a week of frenzy that involved burning bridges with former manager Ernesto Valverde, Barcelona named Quique Setien as the man to take the office at Camp Nou.

Quique Setien was recently unveiled as the Barca boss and he enlisted his plans for the club.

Speaking to the reporters, the Spaniard said that he could have never imagined that he would get the chance to coach the Catalans. Setien thanked the Barcelona board for trusting him while claiming that he was determined to win trophies.

“Yesterday, I was walking around my hometown with cows around me and now I’m here at Barcelona managing the best players in the world. 

“I want to thank this institution for giving me the chance. Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this. I have to thank the club. 

“I’m excited about this challenge and this project. That is the biggest thing I have to transmit to the players. I have to show the players that and normally it’s not very complicated for me to transmit that,” he added.

“My objective is to win everything!”
