[/sport/teampages/barcelona.html Barcelona's] new coach Quique Setien might not appeal to fans wanting a strong voice in a dressing room dominated by big-name players, but supporters who feel the club has lost its identity will be delighted by the appointment.

He took Betis into Europe two seasons ago and got the better of the man he replaces leading Betis to a 4-3 over Ernesto Valverde's Barça last season.
