Barcelona coach Quique Setien explained how he got inspired by Johan Cruyff during a video chat at Beach Soccer Worldwide with Ramiro Amarella.
The Barca coach and the former Barca beach soccer player have a good relationship, having coincided in the 1990s with the Spain beach soccer squad.
The coach in Barcelona loves his dream job at Camp Nou- the one he was at until the coronavirus pandemic struck. Setien jokingly explained how he and his family were in jail too-he’s playing a lot of chess.
More importantly, Setien explained how he got inspired by Johan Cruyff during the chat:
“I didn’t think too much about tactics until I saw Cruyff’s Barca, I went out onto the pitch to play and that was it. To get the ball, I started to see how they played football, you’re starting to see the tactical aspects, and why things happen, you’re starting to analyze it, you’re realizing what you like, and you’re starting to get an idea in your head, and I’ve followed that.”
