Real Betis fullback Junior defends Setien after Leganes rant

Real Betis fullback Junior Firpo has jumped to the defence of coach Quique Setien after defeat to Leganes.

After the setback, Setien launched a furious attack on Leganes' style of play.

But Junior insists: "I have not heard the statements if I am sincere. I do not think the boss despises anyone, he is a very respectful person with the work of other colleagues.

"What he has said is a subject of his."

Junior added: "We have a very recognisable style throughout Spain.

"We have our style and we try to play in this way, if one day we cannot we still try otherwise."
