Real Betis veteran Joaquin: I believe in Setien

Real Betis veteran Joaquin Sanchez has urged management stand by coach Quique Setien.

With Setien's future in doubt, Joaquin struck twice for victory over Huesca.

The veteran said afterwards: "I believe in Quique Setién and I believe in the people who are up there since I arrived, but we have to be patient.

"Three or four years ago we were struggling not to go down. Things have their time.

"To continue as coach does not depend on me, the important thing is that the team continues to grow and that, whether or not it enters Europe, it remains among the best."
