Nicknamed El Maestro, he was best known for his Racing de Santander spells, starting and finishing his 19-year professional career at the club and amassing La Liga totals of 374 games and 58 goals over the course of 15 seasons.
In the 2000s Setién (who represented Spain on three occasions) started a manager career, going on to coach several teams, including his main club.
Born in Santander, Setién made his La Liga debuts in 1977, with hometown Racing de Santander. However, during his first spell with the Cantabrians, although used regularly, he was not yet an undisputed starter, and missed the entire 1982–83 season as well as suffering two top flight relegations.
Setién moved subsequently to lowly CD Logroñés where, after a slow start, he was essential in helping the Riojans successively maintain its top flight status. In 1992 the 34-year-old returned to Racing, and scored a career-best 11 goals in his first year upon his return as the side returned to the top level. He played three more years with his main club, and retired in June 1996 – at nearly 38 – after featuring for Levante UD in the third division playoffs, which also ended in promotion; he appeared in almost 550 official matches in nearly two decades of play, totalling 90 league goals.
Taking up coaching in 2001, Setién started with his favorite club Racing, then switched to Polideportivo Ejido, both in the second level. After that he moved to another club he played for, Logroñes in division three, being sacked midway through the 2007–08 campaign.
Setién appeared three times for Spain and was selected for the nation's 1986 FIFA World Cup squad, but did not leave the bench during the tournament in Mexico. His debut came on 20 November 1985 in a 0–0 friendly with Austria, in Zaragoza.
During one year, starting in 2006, Setién coached the Equatorial Guinea national football team.
