Barcelona coach Setien reveals crunch Vidal talks

Barcelona coach Quique Setien insists he's counting on Arturo Vidal.

Before Sunday's Granada game at Camp Nou, he had to respond to questions on various players, among them the midfielder Arturo Vidal.

First of all, he explained that he "was talking with him before the start of training to explain some things which to do in the 15-minute game we played. And that's what he did in training."

The new Barcelona coach added that "we give importance to order and Arturo and other players tend to lose their position and the order. Our job is to impact that so that they improve. We have to have order to defend and attack. I am convinced that we will achieve it in the end."

On the same line as other questions, Setien wanted to make it clear that "all players have the same chances of playing, even though it's true there are some that have earned the right to be a step ahead of the rest."
