Barcelona coach Setien delighted with response from players

Barcelona coach Quique Setien is delighted with the response of the players to his methods.

Barca go to Valencia on Saturday for Setien's third game in charge.

"No, I don't have the feeling we're a long way from the idea we have," he said.

"I said after the (Copa del Rey) game in Ibiza, that the team was not good and we have to improve. But I think we did well against Granada. We were not efficient in the final third but we controlled the game and did many things that were already being done and we're happy with that (...) It's true there are other things to improve."

Setien admitted that he "had a big fright in Ibiza, I won't lie, but it's true that we need many players to understand the details to produce these changes: to have an impact on the things that we give a lot of importance to."
