Setien announces Real Betis exit after victory at Real Madrid: I didn't understand fans

Quique Setien has announced he's leaving Real Betis after today's 2-0 win at Real Madrid.

Despite a year to run on his deal, both Betis and Setien have agreed to part ways.

"To understand the idiosyncrasy of this club, this city and this support we have, I have probably been one of those who has not been able to since I arrived, I should have empathised more with some situations," said Setien after today's victory.

"There are many positive things but our fans, like most of the supporters around the world, all they want is for his team to win and when this does not happen we already know the place that the coaches occupy and what that means.

"Seville must be known to understand passion, I am the first one who should have educated myself much better in that regard."
