Villarreal has issued a surprising statement announcing the dismissal of Quique Setién. Although the reason is still unknown, since we are at the beginning of the course, it is true that the Spaniard was never the first option after Emery’s departure and has always been on a tightrope.
Three defeats in the first four days have helped the board to make this drastic decision, taking advantage of the national team break, which allows them to have room to find a replacement guarantee for the bench.
COMMUNICATE FROM VILLARREAL
Villarreal CF announces that the first team coach, Quique Setién, is no longer a member of the entity. The club highlights his great professionalism and commitment and appreciates both him and his coaching staff for having assumed command in a complicated situation last season.
Under the Cantabrian coach, the team had a great season, promoting many young players from the youth team, and qualified for the UEFA Europa League after reaching fifth place in LaLiga.
Villarreal CF would like to thank Setién for his work and involvement and wish him the best of luck in his sporting career.
The club’s football director, Miguel Ángel Tena, will assume the position on an interim basis and will direct the team’s session tomorrow, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the José Manuel Llaneza Sports City.
