Enrique Setién Solar (Spanish pronunciation: [enˈrike seˈtjen soˈlaɾ]; born 27 September 1958) is a Spanish former professional footballer who played as a central midfielder, and a manager. He is the head coach of La Liga club Barcelona.

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 matches and 58 goals over 15 seasons.[2]

In the 2000s, Setién (who represented Spain on three occasions) started a managerial career, going on to coach several teams including Racing.

Playing career

Club

Born in Santander, Setién made his La Liga debut in 1977, with his hometown club 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.[citation needed]

Afterwards, Setién represented Atlético Madrid for three years: enjoying a good first two seasons,[3] but appeared rarely in his last after some spats with elusive club chairman Jesús Gil.[4][5][6]

Setién then moved to lowly CD Logroñés where, after a slow start, he was essential in helping the Riojans retain their top flight status. In 1992, the 34-year-old returned to Racing, and scored a career-best 11 goals in the first year in his second spell as the side returned to the top level. He played three more years with the latter, and retired in June 1996 at nearly 38 after featuring for Levante UD in the third division play-offs, which also ended in promotion; he appeared in almost 600 official matches in nearly two decades of play, totalling 95 league goals.[citation needed]

International

Setién appeared three times for Spain and was selected for the 1986 FIFA World Cup squad, but did not leave the bench during the tournament in Mexico.[7] His debut came on 20 November 1985 in a 0–0 friendly with Austria, in Zaragoza.[8]

Coaching career

Taking up coaching in 2001, Setién started with the club he spent most of his playing career at, Racing, and then switched to Polideportivo Ejido, both in the Segunda División. From 2005 to 2006, he was an assistant coach with the Russia national beach soccer team.[9] For three months in 2006, Setién coached the Equatorial Guinea national team.[10] After that he moved to another team he played for, Logroñes in division three, being dismissed midway through the 2007–08 campaign.[11]

In June 2009, Setién became CD Lugo's coach.[12] He led the side to second division promotion in his third year, a second-ever for the Galicians;[13] in the following three years they managed to stay afloat, ranking between positions 11th and 15th.[14][15][16]

On 19 October 2015, following the dismissal of Paco Herrera, Setién became UD Las Palmas' new manager.[17] He arrived with them in the relegation zone, and led them to 11th place in his first season. On 18 March 2017, he announced that he would leave the Canary Islands club at the end of the campaign due to disputes with the board.[18]

On 26 May 2017, Setién was appointed manager of Real Betis on a three-year deal.[19] He led the team to the sixth place in his first year, with the subsequent qualification to the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.[20]

Setién was linked with a move to FC Barcelona in January 2019,[21] but nothing came of it. On 19 May, he announced that he would leave the Estadio Benito Villamarín.[22]

Setién was appointed as head coach of Barcelona on 13 January 2020, replacing Ernesto Valverde after his dismissal.[23][24]

Personal life

Setién's son, Laro, is also a footballer and a midfielder.[25]
