Since taking over as new head coach at the Catalan club, Quique Setién has been quick to show his methodology and impress upon his side the benefits of work on the training pitch.

The Santander born coach took over as Ernesto Valverde's replacement on January 13th and scrapped the day-off previously agreed by his Basque predecessor (Wednesday January 15) with the new coach also adding an evening session on top of the already scheduled morning training session on Tuesday January 14 such was his eagerness to get to familiarise himself better with his new players.
