Villarreal appoints former Barcelona head coach Quique Setién as new manager following Unai Emery’s departure to Aston Villa..

Villarreal announced on their official website on Tuesday that the club have hired former Barcelona manager Quique Setién as their new head coach.     According to Villarreal‘s official statement, Setién signed a short-term contract with the club that lasts two years until the summer of 2024.   The 64-year-old Setién, who has coached Racing Santander, Las Palmas, Real Betis among other clubs, is a major contributor to the latter’s recovery before the arrial of Manuel Pellegrini.   Setién took over from Ernesto Valverde as Barcelona‘s head coach in January 2020, but was sacked in August of the same year after the club’s 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.   Last year, Setién was once rumoured to be taking over the Newcastle United head coaching position, but this rumour has since become a thing of the past.   Villarreal’s former manager Unai Emery confirmed his return to the Premier League to join Aston Villa on Monday night after he was bought out with a €6m release clause.   Liverpool and England legend Steven Gerrard has been sacked by Aston Villa last week after a 3-0 loss to Fulham.   Villarreal currently sits in seventh on the La Liga table, having temporarily amassed 18 points.   Be sure to stay tuned to us to get to know all the latest updates and news about the hottest football, basketball, gaming and e-sports news at 77577SPORTS.
