Barcelona boss Setien dreams of parading UCL trophy in front of cows in hometown

Barcelona manager Quique Setien.

Barcelona manager Quique Setien has told Catalan TV that he is hoping football returns soon, so that his team can start trying to win big titles, and so he can show off trophies “while walking with cows” in his hometown.

It’s not the first time Setien has name-dropped the cows of Liencres, a small town in Cantabria, the place where he hails from. When first appointed manager, Setien said he was ecstatic to go from “walking past the cows in [his] village to training the best players in the world.”

“I tell [the players] many times, that I’m in a hurry, that I don’t have a lot of time to lose, and I want to win the UEFA Champions League and La Liga. If it’s both of them, even better,” he said.

“Of course I dream about it, and strolling around in Liencres, with the cows, with the trophy, showing it off,” he joked.

The manager said he wanted to remain at Barcelona as long as possible:

“I have signed for one and a half years fixed, plus one more possible year, and the reality is that I hope to serve that one too, and even renew.”
