Setien calm amid Real Betis sack rumours

Real Betis coach Quique Setien is fighting for his job today.

Wednesday night's 4-0 thrashing at Levante has Setien's future up for discussion as the Betis board meets this morning.

However, there is a belief Betis will stand by Setien despite their sudden form slide.

Last night, the coach stated: "I am convinced that I will continue. It is true that the club is in a difficult situation because it must endure a lot of pressure but we have already talked about this and although we would all like things to go better, sometimes the expectations are not met.

"After such a result there are few things to say, but we remain confident in what we do. This project has a future."

Asked if he'd be surprised if he was sacked, Setien added: "Yes, of course I would be surprised."
