A little after announcing announcing Quique Setien as the new coach, Barcelona recalled the coach's words about the style of play of Johan Cruyff and stated that this is the playing style that, on paper, he would want to put into practice at the Camp Nou.

In a week where several names were rumoured to take over from Ernesto Valverde, Barca made Quique Setien's arrival official. A coach who has always like the style with which Barcelona play.

A declared 'Cruyffista' who likes having possession of the ball and good play. He did so during his stages at Las Palmas and Betis. But this love for the Dutchman's way of playing football was openly expressed years ago, when very few people though he would go to Barca.

"I felt football could be played better, but I didn't see it until Johan showed us," the coach published in March 2016 on his official Twitter account.

A message that Barcelona wanted to remember, also on their social media. Quoting such post, they added: "Setien's football ideology".
